Hard to find.
The book "The Twits" by Roald Dahl is about a very ugly couple, Mr and Mrs Twit. Mr Twit has a long, long beard, and gets every kind of food you can think of stuck in it. Mrs. Twit has gotten very ugly over the years because she has thought nasty thoughts, and when you think nasty thoughts you become ugly. Even if you are fat, have buck teeth, and a hotdog shaped nose, and you think happy thoughts, you still don't look like an ugly person. Mr. and Mrs. Twit are very nasty people and play tricks on each other all the time. For example Mr Twit put a frog in Mrs Twit's bed, so Mrs Twit put worms in Mr Twit's spaghetti for revenge.
Mr and Mrs Twit love bird pie. The way Mr Twit catches the birds is by putting sticky glue (which is the most powerful glue in the world) on the big dead tree they have in the backyard, and when the birds come at night to sit in the tree they get stuck, cooked, and eaten in the Twits bird pie. Mr Twit has four monkeys, and they live in a cage near the big dead tree. They hate that Mr Twit does such things to the birds, but they can't tell the birds because they speak Australian, and the birds speak English. One day, a Rolly Polly bird comes from Australia. He knows how to speak English, and he tells the birds to not go on the tree. Together the monkeys and all the birds take revenge on the Twits.
If I had to rate this book on a scale of 1-10, I would rate it a 2 because it is very boring and definitely one of the most childish books anybody have ever forced me to read.
