The Twits

A blackly funny masterpiece. From Mr Twit’s disgusting straggly beard to Mrs Twit’s gnarly old toes, they are some of the nastiest villains ever committed to paper – and they like nothing better than being beastly to each other! The Twits torment little children, keep monkeys caged in their back garden, and gobble up little songbirds baked into pie. Can Muggle-Wump the Monkey and the beautiful Roly-Poly Bird spoil the Twits’ latest horrible plot – and avoid ending up as Bird Pie?

    I like this book because it is a unusual story and is a story that is based on a very useless, lazy, hairy people (more like beats).I would point this book to people who like comedy and books by Roald Dahl
