Publisher's Synopsis

Learn English with The Twits! A Penguin Readers book. Discover fifteen famous Roald Dahl adventures, adapted for learners of English aged 7+. Can you read them all?

Penguin Readers is an ELT graded reader series for learners of English as a foreign language. With simplified text, illustrations and language learning exercises, the print edition also includes instructions to access supporting material online.

In these Penguin Readers editions, Roald Dahl's stories have been aligned to the CEFR framework A1 to A2+, in four levels. Each book is also Lexile measured. The graded readers feature illustrated new words, language activities, and fun games between chapters, encouraging students and teachers to structure learning and make real progress. Every book also includes projects and discussions.

Visit the Penguin Readers website for downloadable quizzes, worksheets and answer keys, as well as accompanying audio and a digital version of the book.

The Twits, a Level 2 Reader, is A1+ in the CEFR framework. Sentences contain a maximum of two clauses, introducing the future tenses will and going to, present continuous for future meaning, and comparatives and superlatives. It is well supported by illustrations, which appear on most pages.

Mr and Mrs Twit are not nice people! They enjoy doing bad things, and they are not kind to the animals in their garden. But the animals have a plan. What funny things will the animals do? Can the animals stop the Twits from doing more bad things?
