Matilda had always been different to her family.  At the age of one, she could write her name.   But when she starts school, she discovers that she has a special power, and there are some people in her life who need to be taught a lesson.  After all, bad people need to be punished.

    I like Matilda because she a smart kid who like reading.
    The bit I don’t understand is when her parents don’t know how old Matilda is.

    Matilda was smarter then most kids.
    At the age of 1 she could write her name, At the age of 4 she was going to the public library and at the age of 6 she was the smartest child in her school. Matilda Was a polite child. She had a wonderful teacher called Mrs.honey and an evil head misstress called Mrs trunchball. Matilda will have to use her hidden powers to save the school!
