Publisher's Summary

Reimagined for audio, The Twits is one of Roald Dahl's most joyful tales. Full of vibrant characters and sneaky plot twists, children of all ages will be entertained to the last word.

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....

    "Fun and Enjoyable Listen!"

    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.

    "Great"

    After watching IT CROWD I was worried his voice wouldn't suit a audio book but boy was I wrong. He reads it in such a manner you can quite literally lay back, close your eyes an find yourself lost in this world.

    "Silence on the school run"

    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.

    "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.
