Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents Roald Dahl's Matilda, read by multi-award-winning actress Kate Winslet.

Matilda Wormwood is an extraordinary genius with really stupid parents. Miss Trunchbull is her terrifying headmistress who thinks all her pupils are rotten little stinkers. But Matilda will show these horrible grown-ups that even though she's only small, she's got some very powerful tricks up her sleeve....

Kate Winslet's award-winning and varied career has included standout roles in Titanic, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Finding Neverland, Revolutionary Road, and The Reader, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Also a highly acclaimed voice artist, she received the Grammy Award for Best Spoken Word Album for Children for Listen to the Storyteller.

    "7YR OLD STEP-GRAND DAUGHTER'S 1ST AUDIO BOOK"

    I gave Matilda (the book) and the audio book along with an iPod to my 7 yr old step-granddaughter for Christmas. She knew the story of Matilda but didn't have the book herself so I thought I would get her both the book and the audio book too. It was her first experience with an audio book and I encouraged her to read-along with the book and audio. She loved it. She said the lady (Kate Winslet) reading the story to her is very good and her voice is lovely. I think audio books, along with the physical book is a great way to encourage children to read. Hopefully she'll be like me and love her audio books and have a vast collection like I do.

    Matilda is smart, sweet and funny in itself, but add Kate Winslet's voices and you have one of the best audible books ever. More please Kate!

    "Amazing performaance"

    Roald Dahl books are amazing and in their own right should always be recommended, but this version is amazing. Not only does Winslet show that she is a great actor, but she is an impressive voice actor. It is so good it sounds like a full cast.
    I bought this book because of childhood nostalgia and Winslet's speaking voice is smooth and nice to listen to, but this performance was a revelation. Can not recommend enough.

    "Great first audio book!"

    This is my first audio book. Even though I had read matilda and watched the movie many times, it is beautiful every time I read it. Also , the narration was done beautifully. Still, if I could change a few bits, some parts were read too softly. Other than that, it was perfect!(^o^)b
    I highly recommend it.

    "The perfect storybook, for kids AND adults."

    A masterpiece from Roald Dahl, brought to life by an incredible performance from Kate Winslet. The only thing missing are Quentin Blake's memorable illustrations! Definitely a must-have title in any book lover's collection.

    "Hail Queen Kate, the best reader ever!!!"

    A subversive and hilarious story, a lovable phenomenon of a girl, her teacher and awful parents and school mistress. Winslet is everyone with aplomb, wit and an incredible voice range: at the same time the cruel Miss Trunchbull and Hortensia, the clever trickster. I heard many parts three or four times. Lovely, lovely experience. Dahl would have been satisfied, I am sure.

    "A gorgeously cheeky retelling"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Matilda to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is definitely equal to the film and the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Matilda?

    The description of the Chokey always gives me chills!


    What about Kate Winslet’s performance did you like?

    Kate Winslet's narration is lovely, and her characterisation is spot on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It definitely made me laugh out loud in a few places.

    "What's not to love?"
    What did you like most about Matilda?

    I love every bit of the book. It's thoroughly entertaining and Kate Winslet was spectacular.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Matilda?

    Several. I love Mrs Trunchball's encounter in class with smart Nigel 'unless-you-want my-middle-name' Hicks; the part where Lavender put the newt in her cup of water, and of course Matilda.

    I think this is the best of Roald Dahl's books.


    What about Kate Winslet’s performance did you like?

    Everything, she made all the parts come to life.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed all the way through.


    Any additional comments?

    My children also loved it.

    "Disappointing narrator"

    I found the story interesting enough to continue listening to the book despite the super annoying narration and character voices. Also, the narrator would go from whisper to scream so frequently that it made it almost impossible to adjust the volume of the audiobook for comfortable listening.
