I adore the book “Matilda“. Here we have Matilda with Chopper, who she uses to trick her family. Matilda was actually a rewrite by Roald Dahl. In the original version Matilda wasn’t particularly precocious. Instead, the story was more of a cautionary tale. Matilda was a troublemaker that used her powers to help her teacher win a horse race, ultimately Matilda’s many wrong-doings result in her death.
