THE BOOKS IN YOUR FIRST PARCEL

The Twits
by Roald Dahl

Enter the disgusting world of Mr and Mrs Twit, with this paperback book of Roald Dahl's The Twits.

"'You're plotting something,' Mrs Twit said..."

With filthy hair all over his face and horrid plots growing in his mind, Mr Twit is one of the nastiest people you'll ever meet. Mrs Twit is just as bad and even uglier....

But they don't stop at tricking each other, neighbouring children and even the local birds are in danger, and that's where the Muggle-Wumps come in. They have had enough of the Twits' tricks and, with the help of the handsome Roly-Poly bird, they decide it's time for sweet revenge. They hatch an ingenious plan to give Mr and Mrs Twit just the ghastly surprise they deserve.

Toto the Ninja Cat and the Great Snake Escape
by Dermot O'Leary

Meet Toto: she's no ordinary cat, and she can't wait to have an adventure with you! From one of the UK's best-loved broadcasters, purrfect for fans of The Aristocats, The Secret Life of Pets and Atticus Claw Breaks the Law.

Toto the cat and her brother Silver live footloose and fancy-free in a townhouse in London. Toto is almost totally blind, and learned to trust her senses from a ninja cat-master who taught her back in Italy where they were born. By day, Toto and Silver seem to be ordinary cats, but by night, they love to have adventures! 

One evening, news reaches Toto that a king cobra has escaped from London Zoo! Together with help from a very posh cat and two hungry tigers, Toto and Silver must investigate. Can they find the giant snake, before it's too late?
