Author Roald Dahl
Review by Hannah
Year Group 5
I chose this book because the blurb on the back sounded funny and interesting. I did know about it because we had read it in class and i wanted to buy it and read at home because it was good. My favourite bit was at the end where all the animals stuck the carpet and furniture on the ceiling so the Twits had to live the rest of there life upside-down, until they disappeared into nothing. I also liked the bit where Mr Twit put a frog in Mrs Twit`s bed and she screamed. I learned never to trust someone you don`t know especially if they look like the Twits. I compared The Witches and The Twits together because the witch and the two twits are both strange, both books have a husband and wife and both stories have animals. I think Mr Twit made Mrs Twit`s walking stick longer to annoy her, get revenge and make her worry that she was shrinking. I think Mrs Twit was excited at the start because she thought Mr Twit was going to drink the glass eyeball.
Mrs Twits description:
Long bumpy nose
Mr Twits description:
revolting tufts out of his nostrils and ear-holes
His beard grew in spikes that stuck out straight like the bristles of a nailbrush.
I liked it because they both kept annoying each other, but it did get a bit boring going on and on.
