hilariously evil and schemy.
This was my favorite book as a child! I love the storyline because it is so original and different. Dahl has a way with words and I am always intrigued by his books. Children will stay engaged because you want to see what happens to the Twits at the end. The Illustrator does a great job at capturing Dahl's humor and they really add to the story. "No matter how you look like physically, if you're a good person, it would shine through and would makes you a beautiful person". This is a great lesson for children to learn and can be incorporated into the classroom.
Just the title, THE TWITS, attracted me to this particular book, and with an illustration in the front cover, who wouldn't be curious! It was another coincidence when I picked up to read this book when it was Roald Dahl's Day!THE TWITS is the story of a couple of, well, twits! Mr Twit is has a nasty, unhygenic, ugly beard and Mrs Twit could be recognized by her glass eye, who lived in a windowless house. They have four pet monkeys, and a huge dead tree where they catch the birds for their weekly bird pie. to past time, they love to play tricks on each other. When enough is enough, the four monkeys strategize a plan to turn the tables on the Twits with an interesting plan.I must admit, the best part of this book, was the part where it says, no matter how you look like physically, if you're a good person, it would shine through and that would makes you a beautiful person. THE TWITS is a really good read and people in every ages should try pick up this book and take you time to read it. It is worth your time.
its quite boring a parts but its really funny in other parts
