Matilda father, Mr Wormwood, is a nasty, sneaky git. Her mother is incredibly stupidly dumb, but young Matilda is a very intelligent young lady. And she has a magical gift that helps her keep the bullies at bay.
Even though Matilda is very young, she is very knowledgeable, and smart for her age, and while her own family don’t appreciate her being a bookworm, she stays herself and does not have her eyes glued to a tv unlike her family.
