Product description

A blackly funny masterpiece. From Mr Twit’s disgusting straggly beard to Mrs Twit’s gnarly old toes, they are two of the nastiest villains ever committed to paper – and they like nothing better than being beastly to each other! On top of that, the Twits torment little children, keep monkeys caged in their back garden, and enjoy gobbling up little songbirds baked in a pie. But can Muggle-Wump the Monkey and the beautiful Roly-Poly Bird spoil the Twits’ latest horrible plot – and avoid ending up as Bird Pie?

Also available: Read and Respond activities to accompany The Twits.

    i loved this book this is so funny. i have even downloaded its app from google play. if you have not read this book read it now and you will enjoy it . roald dahl, my favourite author in men, writes books that once if you star to read, you will never want to stop untill it is finished. this book is one of those

    This book is great! Mr. and Mrs. Twit are two of the most nastiest and horrid characters in children’s literature, from their repulsive looks to the mean and horrible tricks they play on one another. Only Roald Dahl could make such a delightful children’s story out of two such miserable, horrid, nasty characters!
