Celebrate Matilda's 30th birthday with these delightful treats
Matilda is 30 years old this October! (my goodness, where did the time go?) and she's as brilliant and wondrous today as when people first read her story in 1988.
If you feel like celebrating this small but mighty heroine on her birthday, check out these marvellous Matilda goodies.
Great if you're reading Matilda for the 1st or 31st time! Complete with stunning colour Quentin Blake illustrations.
The perfect companion to a good book (Matilda, of course), and a slice of Bogtrotter cake.
For speedy reads and delicious drinks on the go - grab your Matilda travel mug and explore!
Take a break from reading and play this fast-paced card game - just make sure you're not left with nasty old Miss Trunchbull at the end!
Make lunch, snacks and picnics extra-special with a bit of Matilda magic.
New Matilda editions
Take your pick from 3 new editions of Matilda created to celebrate the book's 30th anniversary. Illustrator Quentin Blake has reimagined what Matilda would be doing now, aged 30. The new covers show her as an astrophysicist, a world traveller and chief executive of the British Library. And we couldn't be more pleased.
Available online and in the Museum shop from 4 October.
