Conor is getting the time travelling remote control out to take us back to some very special years in the history of Matilda!


In 1988 the amazing author Roald Dahl wrote a very special book about a young girl called Matilda!

Did you know, some of the characters in Matilda were inspired by people Roald Dalh knew!

The scary Miss Trunchball was inspired by the mean Mrs Pratchett who looked after Roald Dahl’s local sweet shop when he was young and Mr Wormwood, Matilda’s dad was inspired by a neighbour of his!
