October 2018 marks 30 years since Matilda was published. This brand new jacket comes with a never-before-seen illustration of Matilda as an astrophysicist – one of the careers that Quentin Blake himself has imagined that Matilda might have at 30 years old. Discover the other jackets in this special 30th-anniversary collection: Matilda as a world traveler and Matilda as Chief Executive of the British Library. Matilda Wormwood’s father thinks she’s a little scab. Matilda’s mother spends all afternoon playing bingo. And Matilda’s headmistress Miss Trunchbull. Well, she’s the worst of all. She is a big bully, who thinks all her pupils are rotten and locks them in the dreaded Chokey. As for Matilda, she’s an extraordinary little girl with a magical mind – and now she’s had enough. So all these grown-ups had better watch out because Matilda is going to teach them a lesson they’ll never forget.
