From the bestselling author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The BFG

Mr. and Mrs. Twit are the smelliest, nastiest, ugliest people in the world.

Customer Reviews of The Twits

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My kids' favourite Dahl thus fara I read The Twits to my boys a couple times a year. They just love it. It's so bizarre! Kids love tales where the bad guys get what they've got coming. The revenge plot in this gem of a story is particularly twisted--just like the Twits! Like most of Dahl's work, it's a delight to read aloud with horrible, ugly voices for Mr. and Mrs. Twit. Hipster dads may feel a little self-conscious of their facial hair after the first chapter, so consider yourselves warned Beardos! ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Under-rated but as good as his other works This one doesn't get talked about so much, or receive much in the way of adaptions. Still it is very funny and heart warming and definately up there with his best works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Twits I read it in one day though I'm not good at english. Mr. Dahl's stories make me smile. Every children should have thought about this kind of punishment in the story. The Twits makes it real : )

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Disgusting, dark, grim, and great! The twits are a couple of disgusting, nasty, mean, trick-playing filthy people told in that wonderful over-the-top style Dahl is known for. You can't help but laugh at their antics, and the tale is a delight for children and adults both. Dahl's ability to describe things with a few evocative words never ceases to amaze me - I cringed at his description of the wretched Mr. Twit's beard, and my niece and nephew howled with delight at the way the Twits are eventually given their comeuppance. By no means a serious story, but nonetheless, a worthwhile read!
