The Twits Review and #RoaldDahlDay

We got the opportunity to get involved in the Roald Dahl Day, which is on Sunday 13th September. We did this by accepting the Roald Dahl Day Crafty Twits challenge, Kacy has read this book but Kira or Summer haven't, so I saw this as a perfect opportunity to get them loving Roald Dahl books too!

You too can get involved in #Roalddahlday by creating the most imaginable beard you can think of you can read re-visit the Dirty Beards chapter for ideas and share it on Sunday @Roald_Dahl and use the hashtag #RoaldDahlDay

There is also an App you can get called  Twit or Miss, Kacy and I had great fun with the app, I would highly recommend it. I won with the highest score between us.

highest and lowest score
Left is my score Kacy is the right score. 

As you all know if you are a reader of my blog, Kacy loves reading and loves writing book reviews so I asked Kacy to write the book review:-

The Twits is a really funny book and is one of those books you can never get tired of. Mr Twit is a very smelly, very old man with bits of food, like cornflakes, sardine and stilton cheese in his revolting beard. Mrs Twit is probably the ugliest  women ever! She is a horrible old hag with a glass eye.

These two twits are forever playing hilarious tricks on each other. Frogs in beds and glass eyes in beer mugs, everything and anything can happen. They are awfully mean to Muggle-Wump and his family who are caged up in the garden. These adorable monkeys are very kind creatures who try to warn all the birds who speak another language, about The Twits plans for bird pie night.

Monkeys and birds won't stand for this plotting Muggle-Wump finally thinks of revenge after being stood on his head for years. You can't stop laughing when this event occurs. The Twits is recommended for ages 7+.

They have brought out two new books for the celebrations, the scatch 'n' sniff book with stickers that smell, I scratched one half an hour ago and can still smell it now! the other Twits book is the hairy Beards which is a hard back book with a Mr Twit on the cover with a hairy beard.

  1. What fun! My mom used to teach 3rd grade, and they read several of Roald Dahl's books throughout the year and then had a big celebration in the spring.
