Penguin presents a marvellous new recording of Roald Dahl's The Twits, read by IT Crowd star Richard Ayoade. The audiobook features original music.
Mr Twit is a foul and smelly man with bits of cornflake and sardine in his beard. Mrs Twit is a horrible old hag with a glass eye. They've kept Muggle-Wump monkeys caged in the garden for far too long, and now the monkeys want to take their revenge....

I remember reading this in primary school, and since I was (and still am) a fan of Roald Dahl's work, I thought I would re-live some of my childhood.
Very funny and enjoyable story that lasts just under an hour which I listened to whilst out for an evening walk. Definitely recommended for children of primary school age, and those that want to re-live a bit of nostalgia. Also, entertaining narration from Richard Ayoade.
I have always loved reading and what I love about audible is can hear a book anywhere and at almost any time.
Recently my eight year old nephew has been listening to audio books with me in the car on the way home from school. Normally he's a very chatty little man, but I put this audio book on for him and he loved it. I had silence in the car as he listened intently to the story and laughter when the funny bits came up. He now askes to listen to more stories.
I'm just about to turn 34... I've lost count how many times I read this as a child and now already how many times I've listened to it on my long commute home.
Richard Ayoade is a wonderful reader, he brings this fantastic story to life. Even now I'm urging the birds and monkeys to win the battle, cue *air punch*
Everything, he is absolutely superb
we think that it was very funny mum said it was very well written and we agree l olso thought that Mrs twit voice was very funny
"Ayoade is a national treasure"
This book is amazingly narrated by Ayoade. I would gladly sit and giggle along with my 4yo niece to this wonderful tale. Highly recommended.
Fantastic narration for this classic Roald Dahl story. An easy five stars, from our eight year old listener.
