Matilda's a waitress at Burt's Diner on Fifth and Main. And she's plumb near the worst waitress the diner's ever seen. Her mind's never on the job -- it's always busy dreaming up stories. But Burt doesn't care, because there's nothing the townsfolk like better than to pile into his diner and listen to Matilda tell one of her humdingers.

Then one day, a city slicker by the name of Ralph Q. Yuckley strolls in with a big old list of health codes Matilda's been violating, from failure to wear a hairnet to sitting on the counters! Poor Matilda has no choice but to learn to be the perfect waitress--and soon she has no time for storytelling. But just you wait, Mr. Yuckley, because one of Miz Matilda's humdingers might just save the day. . . .
