The Matilda Challenge is all over social media, so of course we had to try it ourselves

People around the world are doing their take on a magical moment from the movie version of Roald Dahl's famous book

Matilda (Mara Wilson, right) has one supporter in the shape of her teacher, Miss Honey.

Children's author Roald Dahl published Matilda, his beloved story about a book-loving girl and her super powers, 30 years ago. In 2010, it was given the Broadway treatment in an award-winning, foot-stomping adaptation. But one of the most iconic pop culture moments comes from the 1996 movie adaptation.

Matilda has a pretty rotten life, with mean parents and a bully of a headmistress. She's incredibly smart, but they refuse to see that, which makes Matilda mad - so mad she develops telekinesis, or the ability to move things with her mind.

In a scene from the movie, Matilda (played by Mara Wilson) masters her psychic abilities, all while boogying away to 1957 hit Little Bitty Pretty One. And it's this scene that has taken the internet by storm, with people around the world doing their own version of the magical moment - and Wilson commenting on many of them.

Of course, Young Post had to take five minutes away from their desks, and put together our own version.

We'd love to see what you come up with!
