The Story of Matilda
Every afternoon when her father was at work and her mother away, Matilda was alone. She loved to read, even difficult books! Her dad always made her watch television, but she preferred reading! When Matilda was 6, she started school. Her teacher, Miss Honey, found out that Matilda was incredibly clever because she could read and do maths as well. Miss Honey wanted to move Matilda up in the school system and went to see the headmistress, Miss Trunchbull. Miss Trunchbull was very nasty and mean and said no. But Matilda had another gift.
