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....

    "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.

    "Best narrator."

    Fantastic narration for this classic Roald Dahl story. An easy five stars, from our eight year old listener.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "My favourite childhood book"
    Would you listen to The Twits again? Why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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*


    What about Richard Ayoade’s performance did you like?

    Everything, he is absolutely superb


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    "Good but not brilliant"

    My four year old son loves this, as much for the music as for the story. The story of the Twits is well known and we had already read it together which helped. I'm not sure Richard Ayoade is quite charismatic enough to pull this one off to a 5 star finish but he certainly does a good job of making Mr Twit sound as disgusting as Roald Dahl intended him to be. Thoroughly enjoyable and we didn't mind listening to it twice in a row on the way to Devon.
