LoveReading View on The Twits

In this special edition there's a page of disgustingly smelly scratch-and-sniff stickers to decorate Mr Twit's beard included too! Yuck!. Mr and Mrs Twit are possibly the vilest of all Roald Dahl’s creations. They are ugly on the inside, as is evident from the cruel tricks they play on each other and the way they treat the Muggle-Wump monkeys, and utterly disgusting on the outside! The very thought of Mrs Twit’s cooking is enough to make grown-ups turn green, and as for Mr Twit’s beard … It’s hard to think of a book that is better suited to the addition of scratch and sniff stickers than this viscerally effective tale! It should probably come with a warning for adults but children will relish using the very stinky stickers to make Mr Twit’s beard even more disgusting! Andrea Reece

The Twits Synopsis

Phizz-whizzing new branding for the world's No.1 storyteller, Roald Dahl! Exciting, bold and instantly recognisable with Quentin Blake's inimitable artwork.

Mr Twit is a foul and smelly man with bits of cornflake and sardine in his beard. Mrs Twit is a horrible old hag with a glass eye. Together they make the nastiest couple you could ever hope not to meet. Down in their garden, the Twits keep Muggle-Wump the monkey and his family locked in a cage. But not for much longer, because the monkeys are planning to trick the terrible Twits, once and for all...

And now you can listen to The Twits and other Roald Dahl audio books read by some very famous voices, including Kate Winslet, David Walliams and Steven Fry - plus there are added squelchy sound effects from Pinewood Studios!

Look out for new Roald Dahl apps in the App store and Google Play- including the disgusting Twit or Miss! inspired by the revolting Twits.

About Roald Dahl

Roald Dahl was born in Wales of Norwegian parents – the child of a second marriage. His father and elder sister died when Roald was just three. His mother was left to raise two stepchildren and her own four children. Roald was her only son.
