LobsterQuadrille Apparently while she was in the class for her age group at school, her mind wasn't challenged enough, because she already knew everything that was being taught. Miss Honey thinks that her mind started directing itself towards finding some way to release her pent-up mental energy, so it began redirecting that energy, allowing Matilda to use telekinetic powers. I don't think I explained that very clearly, but I hope it helps.
