Book Review: The Twits by Roald Dahl

The Twits by Roald Dahl
The Twits by Roald Dahl
The Twits by Roald Dahl is one of my favourite Dahl books and I’ve been wanting to purchase it for a while now. Once I did, it was bumped up my “to read” list very fast.
The Twits is about a horrible married couple – Mr and Mrs Twit, who are – horrible cruel to each other and constantly playing nasty jokes on each other. They are also dirty and ugly.
Worst of all though they keep a family of Monkeys caged in their garden and make them constantly stand on their heads.
The local wildlife doesn’t get off any easier with Mr Twit shooting anything in the garden for his dinner!
That is until the animals decide to get their own back!
It’s a lot quicker read as an adult but it certainly hasn’t lost any of it’s silly charm – from the cruel jokes Mr and Mrs Twit play on each other to the revolt of the animals.
It’s gross, it’s imaginative and completely silly. All the things kids love in books – and in life. Reading it as an adult you will be feeding your inner child with mud-pie bookish goodness.
I loved it then and I love it now. Go Monkeys Go!
