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

Mr and Mrs Twit are truly revolting. They play terrible tricks on each other, never wash, trap birds for Bird Pie and they hate children. So the Muggle-Wump monkeys and the Roly-Poly bird hatch an ingenious plan give them the ghastly surprise they deserve!

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. He had an unhappy time at school - at Llandaff Cathedral School, at St Peter’s prep school in Weston-super-Mare and then at Repton in Derbyshire.
