Mr Wormwood: What is this trash you’re reading?
Matilda: It’s called ‘Moby Dick’ by Herman Melville
Mr Wormwood: Moby WHAT!?
Mr Wormwood: This is FILTH!
In the movie, they had Matilda read Moby Dick because who can resist a good dick joke right???
What did she actually read in the book though? The Red Pony by John Steinbeck.
We’ve got a lovely telly with a twelve-inch screen and now you come asking for a book! You’re getting spoiled, my girl!”
