Not the Happiest Bday for Dr Seuss. So sorry, Everyone, but we can't get them, either!
These Dr Seuss books from 1940s & 50s are now officially out-of-print https://t.co/vzZCEwccAm So sad. Instead of making these teaching moments for ourselves & our children, we have decided we should whitewash our history and ignore the current bias & violence against Asians.— Books on First (@booksonfirst) March 2, 2021
From the bestselling author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG!
Matilda is a sweet, exceptional young girl, but her parents think she's just a nuisance. She expects school to be different but there she has to face Miss Trunchbull, a kid-hating terror of a headmistress. When Matilda is attacked by the Trunchbull she suddenly discovers she has a remarkable power with which to fight back. It'll take a superhuman genius to give Miss Trunchbull what she deserves and Matilda may be just the one to do it!
"Matilda will surely go straight to children's hearts." —The New York Times Book Review
