A brand new jacket for the classic story, with a never-before-seen illustration by Sir Quentin Blake of Matilda at 30!
October 2018 marks 30 years since Matilda was published! This brand new jacket comes with a never-before-seen illustration of Matilda as the Director of the British Library - one of the careers that Sir Quentin Blake himself has imagined that Matilda might have at 30 years old. Discover the other jackets in this special 30th anniversary collection: Matilda as a world traveller and Matilda as an astrophysicist.
Matilda Wormwood's father thinks she's a little scab. Matilda's mother spends all afternoon playing bingo. And Matilda's headmistress Miss Trunchbull? Well, she's the worst of all. She is a big bully, who thinks all her pupils are rotten and locks them in the dreaded Chokey. As for Matilda, she's an extraordinary little girl with a magical mind - and now she's had enough. So all these grown-ups had better watch out, because Matilda is going to teach them a lesson they'll never forget.
