7+: The Twits - Roald Dahl

Release Date: 02/09/10


Mr and Mrs Twit are extremely nasty, so the Muggle-Wump monkeys and the Roly-Poly bird hatch an ingenious plan to give them just the ghastly surprise they deserve.


This is another of my childhood favourites and one that clearly demonstrates that perhaps no other author has ever had such an insight into children’s minds as that of Roald Dahl. We all may not be the pretty ones or the smartest, but we all have something special about us and we shouldn’t judge others is the message within this title.

It’s a cracking story and one that has remained with many readers since their childhood and will remain with the next generation even longer. A real treat and one that will demand a reread time and again. Definitely something special and one that we really can’t recommend enough.
