Penguin presents Roald Dahl's Matilda, read by multi-award-winning actress Kate Winslet.
Matilda Wormwood is an extraordinary genius with really stupid parents.
Miss Trunchbull is her terrifying headmistress who thinks all her pupils are rotten little stinkers. But Matilda will show these horrible grown-ups that even though she's only small, she's got some very powerful tricks up her sleeve....
Well, this was intended to entertain the grandkids in the back seat but they haven't had a chance to listen to it yet. The adults in the car found it most entertaining. Kate Winslet is really a fabulous narrator with the ability to change her voice to suit the character she is playing.
It isn't a story that either of us have read, so we had no idea of where the plot was heading.
My rating: 4.7
