The Twits – Roald Dahl

Mr and Mrs Twit are two ugly, smelly, nasty, stupid people who spend their lives playing nasty tricks on each other.

Mrs Twit, who uses a walking stick, does not like children. They enjoy treating animals with cruelty, by luring birds to glue-smothered trees so that they can be baked into bird pie, and by tormenting their pet monkeys, Muggle-Wump and his family, by getting them to stand upside down, one on top of the other.

One day, the arrival of the Roly-Poly Bird from Africa allows the monkeys and the surviving birds to get the revenge that they have craved for years.

The long haul (Diary of a wimpy kid) – Jeff Kinney

A family road trip is supposed to be a lot of fun . . . unless, of course, you’re the Heffleys.

The journey starts off full of promise, then quickly takes several wrong turns. Gas station bathrooms, crazed seagulls, a fender bender, and a runaway pig-not exactly Greg Heffley’s idea of a good time. But even the worst road trip can turn into an adventure-and this is one the Heffleys won’t soon forget.
