everybody loves matilda. it’s a great story and probably all children in america have read the book. also, who wouldn’t want her awesome super powers? for those of you who need a refresh, matilda was a young girl who loved books. as soon as she was able, she read everything possible in the library-partly to learn and partly as an escape from her wretched family. eventually, she went to school where she met the encouraging ms. honey and the dreaded trunchbull. as you might expect, many adventures ensued mostly involving freeing the school of the trunchbull’s tyrannous reign via matilda’s ability to move objects with her mind. all ends well and matilda ends up finding a loving mother in ms. honey. given her exceptional intelligence i think if matilda were older, she’d rock that tweed/collegiate/librarian look pretty well.
