Curious about the connections between Matilda and Miss Agatha Trunchbull? Discover more in this reader featuring a mini story perfect for Dahl fans!

Matilda Wormwood had always been an extraordinary girl: smart, kind, courageous, and ready to take on new challenges despite the shortcomings of her parents. When she enters school for the first time, Matilda is faced with her toughest challenge yet – dealing with Miss Agatha Trunchbull, the school’s horrifying headmistress. Read along and explore the ups, downs, and magical mishaps between Matilda and Miss Trunchbull in this reader!
Roald Dahl (1916–1990) was born in Llandaff, South Wales, and went to Repton School in England. His parents were Norwegian, so holidays were spent in Norway. As he explains in Boy, he turned down the idea of university in favor of a job that would take him to "a wonderful faraway place." In 1933 he joined the Shell Company, which sent him to Mombasa in East Africa. When World War II began in 1939, he became a fighter pilot and in 1942 was made assistant air attaché in Washington, where he started to write short stories. His first major success as a writer for children was in 1964. Thereafter his children's books brought him increasing popularity, and when he died, children mourned the world over, particularly in Britain where he had lived for many years.

Quentin Blake's first book, Patrick, was published in 1968 and was followed by classics such as Mister Magnolia, All Join In, and Clown. He is best known for illustrating Roald Dahl’s books. A patron of the Association of Illustrators, he was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal in 1980 and the international Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2002, and was the inaugural British Children’s Laureate from 1999 to 2001.
