Matilda at 30: World Traveller

Roald Dahl Quintin Blake

About the book


The original, magical story with a brand new cover from Quentin Blake!

October 2018 marks 30 years since Matilda was published! This brand new jacket comes with a never-before-seen illustration of Matilda as a world traveller - one of the careers that Quentin Blake himself has imagined that Matilda might have at 30 years old.

Reunite with some of the greatest (and most ghastly) characters in history!

Matilda Wormwood
A remarkable child with a magical mind.

Miss Honey
The kindest, cleverest and most caring teacher.

Mr and Mrs Wormwood
Matilda's parents - liars, swindlers and TV addicts.

Miss Trunchbull
Headmistress of Crunchem Hall and the world's biggest bully.

Bruce Bogtrotter
Chocolate-cake-eating extraordinaire!

These are just some of the unforgettable characters from this classic story by the world's number one storyteller - now with a brand-new cover design from Quentin Blake to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the publication of Matilda.

Also available:
Matilda at 30: Chief Executive of the British Library
