The Grand High Witch of all the World has gathered together the witches of Inkland for an annual conference at the Hotel Magnificent in Bournemouth. Their agenda is the elimination of all the children in the country and the prospects for their young victims look bleak.

But the Grand High Witch and her cronies have reckoned without the spark and ingenuity of a young guest at the hotel and his rather brilliant grandmother.

With an illustrated Quentin Blake cover as well as an exciting end section about Roald Dahl and his world.

Matilda's headmistress Miss Trunchbull is even more horrible and dislikes small children. Luckily Matilda is an incredibly clever child with a mind that can move things, and a few tricks up her sleeve.

With delightful Quentin Blake illustrations, and a section full of fantabulous facts at the back.
