Matilda’s head is bursting at the seams with lots of useful, and not so useful facts. She memorizes everything from polar bears to the phonebook! One day, her mother decides her head is already full to the brim, so she orders a second one and goes about filling that one too! But it seems that two heads might not be better than one in this wacky animation about the importance of learning from experiences rather than just books.
