About the Author

Roald Dahl (1916-1990) was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. He spent his childhood in England and, at age eighteen, went to work for the Shell Oil Company in Africa. When World War II broke out, he joined the Royal Air Force and became a fighter pilot. At the age of twenty-six he moved to Washington, D.C., and it was there he began to write. His first short story, which recounted his adventures in the war, was bought by The Saturday Evening Post, and so began a long and illustrious career.

After establishing himself as a writer for adults, Roald Dahl began writing children’s stories in 1960 while living in England with his family. His first stories were written as entertainment for his own children, to whom many of his books are dedicated.

Roald Dahl is now considered one of the most beloved storytellers of our time. Although he passed away in 1990, his popularity continues to increase as his fantastic novels, including James and the Giant PeachMatildaThe BFG, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, delight an ever-growing legion of fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The twits Feb. 14 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Have you ever meet a mean and ugly person? If you didn't then read The Twits because I will know that you will like it because I liked it a lot too. It is a very interesting book. It is about Mr. and Mrs. Twit playing jokes on each other but when they where young they where pretty and cool, but now they are ugly and really mean. They also have a family of monkeys in their lawn. Their rooms are really messy and ugly. Once you read the book of The Twits you will know more about them because I am not going to tell you what will happen in the story. The author of the book is Roald Dahl and the grade is 4.4 and it has 81 pages.
Mr. Twit is tall, really hairy, mean and ugly, and he whines a lot. Mrs. Twit is tall, has spiky teeth, mean and angry, and she likes to fight a lot like she hates people. When they where really young people they looked good and didn't look really ugly like how they are now. Now they look horrible and horrifying people. When the twit wanted to be in a circus they wanted to show the monkeys juggling and sitting upside down So that's when Mr. Twit got the monkeys and trained them at there house. The monkey gets tired and hungry because the Twits make them suffer a lot. When the birds fly to the trees they get stuck because the Twits put really really hard and strong glue. When the birds get stuck then the twits got them and cook them in the pie and eat them. They would make the monkeys sit upside down because Mr. Twit wanted to be a circus person and he didn't so he does it in his house. What will the monkeys do to the Twits for making them suffer?
My favorite character in the story is the monkeys. The monkeys are my favorite because they are funny and really smart, but they can't help the birds by telling them not to sit on the branch because those monkeys are from Africa and they can't speak any English. They are filled with excitement and are happy characters.
My favorite part of the book is when the Twits turn upside down and their heads gets stuck on the floor and they stay like that for about three or more days and they shrink. I think the kids who have never seen two bad and ugly people should read this book and it will tell them how bad they are. When I first read the book it made me laugh and shout because it was so funny.
I really loved the book The Twits because it is funny, sad, and it makes you laugh. I recommend The Twits to you because it is a funny book and an easy book for you to read and have fun with.

This was not appropriate for the children I work with. I didn't even like the names of the characters. Might be ok for others.
