“Roald Dahl sometimes shared a tonal kinship with Ogden Nash, and he could demonstrate a verbal inventiveness nearly Seussian…[His] stories work better in audio than in print.” –The New York Times

“The Trunchbull” is no match for Matilda!

Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!

    Amazing! Growing up, my father used to read Roald Dahl to us and so I have very precious memories of this story. Kate Winslet is brilliant reading this story. At first you are entranced listening to her lovely voice and then as she starts to narrate the characters you completely forget it is one person reading a story. She really brings the essence of this book to life and is beyond talented. Absolutely wonderful!

    Loved the book! The audio was extremely difficult to hear clearly at times however. Very hard to hear in the car, and I’ve never had a issue with an audio book previously.

    Really enjoyed the story. However, the audio was difficult. The range from soft to loud was extreme, so that often I couldn't hear, then "Ouch! My Ears!" All of a sudden. Some of the character's lines (school headmaster, Hortencia) were read at such speed my mom-British ear couldn't follow

    My granddaughter and I listened on a recent car trip. We loved it. We couldn't wait to see the movie after listening. The movie was great Of course as always, the book was so much better! We can't wait to listen to the next book.
