This is a fun and enjoyable book that readers will just love the silliness of. Under the silliness is also a message of how being rude, horrible and unkind will see you pay for it in the long run and that kindness is the way to go – good will always triumph over evil.

His characters are so vivid, especially the nefarious ones. Plot was a little strange but still interesting and always unique. Loved the author and illustrator info at the end!

A short story this time from Roald Dahl for my daughters bedtime story. She liked it. It‘s a re-read for me.

This MF, is a classic Roald Dahl book to add to any library. Themes such as morality and friendship are great lessons to share with students. The Twits are the messiest and meanest people ever known. When the Muggle-Wumps and Birds join forces, its time for The Twits to finally get what they deserve. An AS would be a great use of this classic, and most information could be found on the author's website. www.roalddahl.com will supply information.

Sdemps UDL 6.3 Facilitate managing information and resources, and EL strategy #7 Show students how to use graphic organizers like semantic mapping and imaging are both met while having the students complete an AS on Roald Dahl. #ucflae3414sp21 2y
TabathaA Love Roald Dahl's works, but never heard of this one. I am glad that you completed a review of this book, as it gave some insight into the illustration on the cover. Sounds interesting. I added it to my TBR stack. Thanks, Sharlece. 2y

I listened to this book on audio and I found that my mind wandered a lot. It was also shorter than I expected it to be. I may have to reread it at some point.

The twits are all about making everybody's lives miserable, even each other's. Both of them take it to another level when making their lives terrible. On top of all that Mr. Twit wants to own his first Upside-down monkey circus in the world. So if you like books that make people's lives unforgettably terrible. You'll like this book. The theme is The Twits and the friendship between the monkeys and the birds, and to come together to get revenge.

MissYaremcio Well done Alissa! I do love Ronald Dahl! I would suggest looking at what themes can do to the story, as I do understand the theme of friendship, but I would look at what that entails! 5/6 2y

Reading the Scots translation of The Twits is almost funnier than the original—and Mr. Twit‘s beard seems even MORE gross in another language 🤢

Story about Mr. & Mrs. Twits, who are grotty, disgusting, and cruel. They caged their monkeys, and catch birds to make bird pies. The monkeys soon turn rebellious and with the help of the birds, come up with a plan to ‘punish‘ the horrible couple. Not one of Dahl‘s better books, though entertaining enough. Thanks for recommending this @jenniferw88 .

Finished this one last night
Thoroughly enjoying re reading Roald Dahl classics with my little one , this page definitely resonated with us as we often speak about good thoughts, karma and being a good person 💕

I had also forgotten how stomach turning these characters are 🤢 🤣🤣

Kelican17 I love this quote. I have it on a magnet, on my fridge! 4y
Powered_By_Plants @Kelican17 😍 it‘s definitely worthy of a magnet and so true , it definitely shows in a persons aura , they do shine ✨ x 4y
Curiouser_and_curiouser Oh yes! One of my faves. This is such a wonderful book. My 11 year old struggles to find books which hold her attention but told me she read almost this entire book today in one sitting, which is exactly what I did at her age. A classic for sure! 3y
Powered_By_Plants @Curiouser_and_curiouser ahh fantastic! You can never go wrong with Roald Dahl, has she tried the David walliams? My son started reading the hunger games around 12 which he loved 3y

Oh The Twits. My favorite, ridiculous, evil couple that I've always loved. They are perfect in every way and are one of my favorite Roald Dahl creations, which is saying quite a bit. I can't wait until my nephew is old enough for me to share my #lovehate of the Twits with him.

It's in simple language and all, but reading this as an adult you might think about its influence on kids. However, I liked it as I was just trying to catch up with the writers I missed during my childhood.

I really enjoyed revisiting this book by Roald Dahl. He has quite an odd and interesting imagination and his writing really is a lot of fun. It was great on audio and a lot of fun to listen to as an adult.

If a prson has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it.

I've been MIA lately because I volunteered to be a chaperone at my kid's theater conference in Irving, TX. On the way home yesterday we stopped at my favorite Half Price Books in Dallas and I walked away with all of these for only $13. I 💜 Roald Dahl! I've given away his books to so many kids over the years, and every single time I find them on the clearance racks, I just have to bring them home.

These books are so funny but Quentin Blake's illustrations just make them perfect!!! A friend recommended this to me after being appalled that I hadn't read it as a kid! I think you appreciate it more as an adult because I've DEFINITELY come across my fair share of Twits out there! A must read for any kid who is genetically predisposed to sarcasm and dark humor! 😁

My local Sydney newspaper is doing another amazing kids literacy program where you buy the paper & for $3 you can buy a Roald Dahl book. The first day they gave away this cute little box to put them in. There's 14 to collect and I think it's a brilliant idea. They did the same with Dr Seuss last year too. Three cheers for literacy programs!💚💚💚💚💚
