I know this is another Roald Dahl, but I was a fan, ok! I was actually given this book by the school librarian as well because I checked it out so much. I loved this book because it was like nothing I had ever read. It was disgusting, morally wrong, and hilarious! I loved Mr. and Mrs. Twit for all their conniving tricks they played on one another. I always pictured their home to be filled with mud, left over molded food in pots and pans, frogs, and hair from either Mr. Twit's beard, or Mrs. Twit's raggedy head!
I'm sure most of you are laughing at this one. That's ok, I laughed too when I decided I was going to share with the world that I read the Girl Talk series. I hope I'm not alone on this one, but these were great! While everyone else was getting into The Babysitters Club, I was sneaking around with these books. They came out at the perfect time when my little body was transforming into the tween years of my life. Boys were beginning to exist in the same world, and something in these stories was calling out my name! More than anything, I think I was fascinated by the fact that once I finished one book, I could go and get another and continue to grow with the story and its characters. I wonder where most of these books are now, or what has replaced them for girls these days???
So come out with it! What were your top three books when you were little?
