Matilda is a children's novel by author Roald Dahl. It was published in 1988 by Jonathan Cape in London, with illustrations by Quentin Blake.

It was adapted into an audio reading by Joely Richardson, a film in 1996, a two-part adaptation for BBC Radio 4 starring Nicola McAuliffe as Matilda and narrated by Lenny Henry. In 2010 it was adapted into a musical.
