    Hand-picked favourites
    With a phizz-whizzing new cover to mark 100 years of Roald Dahl, this is the story of a foul and smelly couple known as The Twits.

    Mr Twit has bits of cornflake and sardine in his beard, while his wife Mrs Twit is a horrible old hag with a glass eye. When they're together, they are probably one of the nastiest couples you're likely to meet. They love to play awful pranks on each other, too.

    The Twits are such a nasty couple that they keep Muggle-Wump the monkey and his family locked in a cage on their garden. But they haven't bet on the monkeys making a plan to trick them...

    One of Dahl's funniest stories, the story is accompanied by Quentin Blake's iconic illustrations.
