Title: The Twits
Author: Roald Dahl

This book is about two Twits. Their names are Mr. and Mrs. Twit. The Twits are two mean, horrible, ugly creatures that play nasty tricks on each other. As an example, one time Mrs. Twit put worms in Mr. Twit’s spaghetti. They also have monkeys for pets. The Twits eat birds for supper; however, one day when Mr. Twit went out to get the birds, they were not there. This happened two more times causing Mr. Twit and his wife become furious. They went to buy some guns to shoot the birds. Find out what happens next (that means read the book)…

I give this book a 2, out of 5 stars.

The story begins with two troublemakers/pranksters. George Beard and Harold Hutchins play a series of jokes that cause their school to lose a football game. Their Principal, Mr. Krupp, gets so angry at them he makes them follow a list of rules. If they don’t follow them, Mr. Krupp will give the football team a copy of a video. This video reveals George and Harold pulling the pranks on the team. Then they find a way of how to make Mr. Krupp hand over the video and forget the game. But it goes wrong and they turn Mr. Krupp into Captain Underpants and he fights many villains. The fate of the world lies in George and Harold’s hands. Will they succeed or fail…

If you read the first book you should read the rest of the series. I don’t recommend this book to any 6th graders. Because its easy and dumb. I also would recommend the book to younger children that enjoy dumb, funny books. I give this book three stars.

If you are looking for a funny story that makes you laugh out loud, then Diary of a Wimpy Kid Cabin Fever is for you! The characters are brothers Greg and Roderick Heffley and Greg's best friend, Rowley. The main character, Greg, is a middle schooler trying his best to stay out of trouble. Unfortunately, Greg gets into trouble at school. His parents have no idea, until the family is stuck inside their home for a week because of the huge snow storm. Greg ALWAYS seems to get into trouble, accidently. I recommend you read the entire Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. The author does a great job telling funny stories about middle schoolers that most of us can relate to. I recommend this book for people that have a sense of humor and a good imagination.

This book had me rocking with laughter.  Growing up with five brothers, Jon Scieszka has explained in this book where he gets his terrific sense of humor.  Attending Catholic school creates the scene for hilarious school stories.  Don't miss the chapter on their family vacation where they take a road trip to Florida with their cat.  Great guy book for grades 4-7 or for a "Guys Only" book discussion.
