"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!
"Dahl's stories work better in audio than in print.... [Kate Winslet's] Matilda is younger than Broadway's, has less attitude and more adenoid. But at the aggrieved voices of the horrible Wormwoods, or Miss Trunchbull, or several schoolchildren, I laughed aloud." (Gregory Maguire, The New York Times Book Review)

Even better than before- Kate Winslet was perfect!
Probably my favorite audiobook I've listened to so far.
Matilda, of course.
The first few chapters when Matilda was discovering reading and messing with her parents.
This book makes you think about growing up, parenting, and everything in between. It made me grateful for my parents and made me want to constantly have a book in my hands.
Kate Winslet's narration was the most perfect thing ever. Even if you've already read this book, get her audio. It's a magical thing.
