Roald Dahl challenge week five: The Twits


It’s time for our final Roald Dahl challenge! That’s right, this is our very last competition in the series and this is your last chance to win a bundle of Roald Dahl books!

The final challenge is inspired by The Twits.

The challenge

The Twits are husband and wife – they are very smelly, play nasty tricks on each other, and are horrible to animals. They even have bits of food in their hair. It’s time for a makeover.

Find your favourite shampoo or showergel and imagine that you have used it to transform the Twits – not only are they clean, they are also very good people! Write a character profile based on your makeover – what do The Twits look now? What are their likes and dislikes? Maybe you’ve given them lessons in how to be polite?

This competition has now closed but feel free to complete the activity anyway!
