Unlike her family members who are selfish and dull, Matilda is an extremely precocious child with a love of books and a high aptitude of mathematics. Unfulfilled and neglected by her family, Matilda often comes up with pranks to “punish” her parents. Her overwhelming mental power leads her to develop telekinetic powers which she perfects to defeat the cruel headmistress, Miss Trunchbull and help her teacher Miss Honey. Though she is clearly unique, Matilda remains an extremely likable and humble young girl.
