Matilda by Roald Dahl is a classic children’s book that tells the story of a young girl named Matilda who discovers she has the power of telekinesis and uses it to stand up against her cruel parents and her tyrannical school principal.

The main character, Matilda, is a likable and relatable young girl who is smart, curious and determined. She is also kind and empathetic, and her struggles to find her place in the world and her determination to use her powers to stand up against the adults who mistreat her make her an inspiring and relatable character.

One of the most striking aspects of the book is the way it deals with themes of empowerment and standing up for oneself. Matilda is a young girl who is constantly belittled and mistreated by her parents and her school principal, but she never gives up.
