She’s a big bully, who thinks all her pupils are rotten and locks them in the dreadedChokey.Despite these beastly grownups trying to push her down, Matilda is an extraordinarygirl with a magical mind. And she’s had enough.So all the terrible adults had better watch out, because she’s going to teach them alesson they’ll never forget!This translation into Scots is a timely addition to the growing number of high qualitybooks available to children and young people to read in the wonderfully rich andexpressive Scots language.
