For the 30th anniversary of the publication of Roald Dahl's Matilda, Dahl's long-time illustrator Quentin Blake imagined what Matilda might be doing at the age of 30.
“Since, as a small child, Matilda was gifted in several ways," said Blake, "it wasn’t very difficult. I imagined that for each version of our grown-up Matilda one of her extraordinary talents and achievements would have come to the fore and shown her a role in life."
