    "The Twits is one of my favorite childhood classics by Roald Dahl. The illustrations are whimsical and fun and the story is a page turner for adults and kids alike. The imagination of Dahl and the creativity of the story make this one of those books that you will love for years and years. If you haven't read it in awhile or have never read it, I recommend The Twits to everyone."

    "I have been a long time fan of Roald Dahl but had never read this particular book. I jumped at the chance to purchase it when I found it online and read it to my grandson when he came to visit over Christmas.
