Publisher's Summary

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....

Sound levels were a bit off

The sound levels were off which made it frustrating while listening to in the car - having to turn it up and down constantly.

My 7 year old who doesn't have the greatest attention span loved it nonetheless.

Crazy Book

Well, I was surprised by just how weird this book was. I didn't enjoy it and was glad it was only 1hr long.

My son and I loved it

Loved the narrator. My son and I would listen just before bed time and it was something we looked forward to doing every evening.
About to pick our next Roald Dahl book to listen to.

Fantastic!

I absolutely adore this book. It was so entertaining that as soon as I read/listened to the very first sentence, I was hooked. I couldn't take my eyes away from it. I can't wait to read more and more on Roald, Dahl's books!

Problem with volumes but great book

I love Roald Dahl books and so do my kids, however the narrator is extremely loud when using Mr and Mrs Twit’s voice and the rest of the story is quiet so can be hard to listen to, as you are constantly turning the volume up and down

The Twits...

Its a funny little story that is great for kids, I read this a lot as a child and while looking through Audible I decided to listen to it and see if it was just as good as I remembered it.
Its fine and holds a lot of nostalgia.
