Matilda comes into the world into the unlikeable Wormwood family. Although the new-born daughter can’t brag about having the best parents ever, she turns out to be a very exceptional child. Not only does she bravely manage to explore the city unaccompanied as a baby, but she also learns many skills - reading included - much quicker than other children, and soon, books become her greatest passion. Still, those aren’t all of Matilda’s abilities, and the ones she is yet to discover will change more than just her life.
