In five new im­ages, the il­lus­tra­tor de­picts a 30-year-old Matilda as a poet lau­re­ate, an as­tro­physi­cist, a spe­cial FX artist, a “world trav­eller”, and the CEO of the Bri­tish Li­brary! Three of these draw­ings will ap­pear this month on the cov­ers of spe­cial col­lec­tors’ edi­tions pub­lished by Pen­guin Ran­dom House. Ma

tilda has been one of Roald Dahl’s best­selling books since it was pub­lished in 1988, with 17 mil­lion copies sold world­wide.
