Se ci guardiamo intorno, possiamo renderci conto che non sono infrequenti le persone brutte, cattive o sporche; ma ci sono anche persone insieme cattive, sporche e brutte, come gli Sporcelli di questo libro di Dahl. Sembrerebbe poco interessante occuparsi di loro, e invece no. Gli Sporcelli hanno un’indole malvagia e fanno scherzi orribili: come quando la signora Sporcelli mise il suo occhio di vetro nel boccale di birra del marito, per fargli sapere che lo teneva sempre sotto controllo! Fortunatamente, gli Sporcelli non sono inesauribili nelle loro trovate, e alla fine, sia pure in modo del tutto involontario, rimangono vittime della loro stessa cattiveria. Di loro non rimarranno che due fagotti di stracci e quattro vecchie e sporche ciabatte.
Età di lettura: da 7 anni.
"Dahl possiede il rarissimo dono di far scomparire, al momento della lettura, tutto il mondo che sta attorno al lettore. Senza dargli inutili lezioni. E senza mai chiedergli di essere più intelligente di com'è."

I feel full of the joys of spring! This was such a delightful little book. My morbid, inner kid couldn't have been more ecstatic! Should I call someone a twit or a nitwit? I guess, no. That would be very rude of me! My doppelgänger would approve otherwise. And since I'm not like my sinister doppelgä Leggi tutto
Unfortunately, I don't have any rose-tinted glasses for this one. So, as an adult, all I could think of is, " Dahl, what were you on ??" Mr. Twit was a twit. He was born a twit. And, now at the age of sixty, he was a bigger twit than ever. The Twits are ugly people - through and through. They think
I read a lot of Roald Dahl books as a child, and have read quite a few more to my own children, most recently to my disabled youngest daughter. The Twits was one of those. The Twits, although it has its moments, is one of my least favourite Dahl books, perhaps the least favourite. It's easy to be too Leggi tutto

ENGLISH ( The Twits )/ ITALIANO «What a lot of hairy-faced men there are around nowadays» Ugly, dirty and bad. It's not about the movie of Ettore Scola about the slums, with Nino Manfredi as memorable protagonist. We are talking, instead, about the Twits, Mr and Mrs Twits, spending their days tremendous Leggi tutto
“If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked Leggi tutto
Another re-read for the fun of it! This story pulls the reader to the edge, injecting silliness, fear, and all-around revenge into a larger plot that will have children giggling and washing their faces in short order. What is a twit? Not so easy to explain, is it? Well, Dahl seeks to provide the read Leggi tutto
Twits are ugly people who do horrible things to each other and others. They are not nice, and they are negative people who have been negative so long that the negativity has made them ugly. On Monday I was going to write a review that just said that I'm a twit. Which isn't really true, I'm generally Leggi tutto
I originally read this book in either elementary school or middle school and really enjoyed it. Since I am reading all of Roald Dahl's books again, I thought "why not," and re-read this one. Surprisingly, I don't remember this story at all. This book is about the grossest couple: Mr. and Mrs. Twit.
Who doesn’t love a good villain? And Mr and Mrs Twit are a delightfully nasty pair! When they’re not having a go at one another - she mixing in live worms into his spaghetti, he trying to send her off into space with balloons - they’re trying to eat children, actually eating the local bird populace Leggi tutto
