4.0 out of 5 stars An amusing picture book for 3-5s with a message about the importance of reading.
Twoo Twit is a silly little owl who intrigues the other woodland animals with his foolishness. There is however a more serious underlying reason why Twoo Twit is such a dim-wit: he skips school... And then one night where he decides to hang in the church tower oblivious to the bell-ringing contest because he can't read the great big poster, and from then on Twoo twit...

This review is from: Twoo Twit (Hardcover)
Twoo Twit is a silly little owl who intrigues the other woodland animals with his foolishness. There is however a more serious underlying reason why Twoo Twit is such a dim-wit: he skips school... And then one night where he decides to hang in the church tower oblivious to the bell-ringing contest because he can't read the great big poster, and from then on Twoo twit shows up in the classroom!
The pictures are friendly fun and, as if his name isn't ridiculous enough, there's plenty to make a four-year old giggle e.g. the description of Twoo twit as a mushroom bonce, and the prickled-bottom-on-a-thorn-bush gag.

This review is from: Twoo Twit (Paperback)
[...] has a list of things that children have described bullying. It includes being called names, being put down or humiliated, being teased.

In this book, it's not just the other kids that are name-calling - even the mother hare call Twoo Twit a name (a noodle - not the worst name in the world, but still unnecessary and I can imagine kids being upset by an adult saying that about them). And when he is upset and wobbling after sitting on a ringing bell in the church for two hours, instead of him being shown any concern, the other forest kids laugh at him.

I understand that the point of this book is that school and learning to read are important. But there are less cruel ways to get this message across.

The only good point about this book, and the only reason I gave it a two star rather than a one star review, is that it could be used in school or at home to talk about bullying. I've seen a lesson plan to that effect...

I was lent this book by my son's nursery and I am really upset by it.

This review is from: Twoo Twit (Paperback)
This is the story of a stupid little owl who is too lazy to go to school and prefers bunking off all day and mucking about. His reputation in the forest is seriously dented and his parents are in despair until the day he learns a serious lesson about the importance of being able to read. It is funny and heartwarming with wonderful illustrations and has some fantastic lines which even parents will find amusing.
