Written by Roald Dahl

Ahhh! There is a slimy frog in my bed! Do you like pulling pranks? Then this book is perfect for you. This is about an ugly woman and crummy man who like to pull pranks on each other. Mr. Twit puts super glue on the branches so when birds land on the tree branches, they won’t be able to fly away. When the birds get stuck, Mr. Twit kills them and brings then inside to cook them up to make their supper! The Twits have pet monkeys. They think it’s despicable what the Twits are doing. So for revenge… well, you have to read the book to find out!

This book reminds me of my brother and sister because my sister and brother like to pull tricks on each other too like Mr. and Mrs. Twit. The lesson of the story is that if you pull a prank on someone, they might get revenge on you. My favorite part is when Mr. Twit tricks Mrs. Twit into doing stretches. Mr. Twit did something hilarious with balloons to Mrs. Twit. This book made me laugh!

I recommend this book to anybody who likes to laugh! Everybody likes a good laugh! This book has pictures on every page and it has 76 pages. Read this hysterical book to find out what happens to the crummy Twits!
