About this deal

She takes advantage of her glass eye to play practical jokes in revenge against her husband, and demonstrates multiple acts of cruelty and viciousness throughout the story: the main reason behind her use of a walking cane was as a weapon against innocent children and animals, she participates in the torment of the couple's pet monkeys the Muggle-Wumps, and she once served Mr. In 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown, a theatrical reading of The Twits was performed at London's Unicorn Theatre directed by Ned Bennett and performed by Zubin Varla and Martina Laird. Twit), a spiteful, idle, unkempt couple who continuously play nasty practical jokes on each other to amuse themselves, and exercise their devious wickedness on their pet monkeys.

Once a week the Roly-Poly bird flies to visit the monkeys, to secretly save the birds by acting as an interpreter of languages. Usually by Christmas time, half of my kids are walking around showing off their entire Roald Dahl box sets. With so much weight on it from above, the Twits literally get 'the shrinks', as was mentioned earlier in the book, but this time it's not a trick; it's the real thing. To pay Mrs Twit back for the worms in his spaghetti, Mr Twit thought up a really clever, nasty trick . This is a short, amazing and funny story about two disgusting, silly people who always pull pranks and tricks on one another which is funnyAnd also it’s about a bunch of monkeys that have been trapped in the Twit’s garden and they have to escape.On a Tuesday night, a group of four boys see the ladder next to this tree and they decided to walk up into it, not thinking or knowing that glue was on it. For a story this short, there is a colourful cast of characters, and they emerge later in the story. The monkeys try to warn the birds before they land on the tree, but the English-speaking birds do not understand the monkeys' African language. The Twits was adapted for the stage in 2007 and an animated film adaptation, directed by Phil Johnston, is scheduled for release in 2025. Everything goes as planned, the Twits believed they've been turned upside down and so stand on their heads to counter it, only to be stuck to the bare floor.

I wish I had bought them for her, but now that she’s 14, I think she’s outgrown them though I am confident she would want to revisit these delightful stories and their illustrations when she is older.Albeit, while she frequently demonstrates acts of stupidity, she has also exhibited intelligence: she managed to manoeuvre her way out of being carried off into the sky by balloons by chewing through several of the strings and landing safely on the ground. In April 1999, a theatrical musical adaptation by Justin Pearson (general manager and the artistic director of the UK's National Symphony Orchestra) and actress Anne Collis, directed by Michael Dineen was presented at The Questors Theatre in Ealing, West London. A hideous, vindictive, spiteful married couple known as the Twits live together in a brick house without windows.

Twit, in retaliation, spreads glue on the monkeys' cage (which serves as a substitute perch), the monkeys alter the warning.

I've heard from some quarters the criticism that Roald Dahl's books are often too dark and should therefore not be read to children. With the help of the birds, Muggle-Wump removes the carpet from the floor, as well as all of the tables, chairs, and other objects in the house, and uses Mr. All that was left of the Twits was two bundles of old clothes, two pairs of shoes and a walking stick. He was also the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The BFG and many more brilliant stories.
