Grandma Vs Mrs Twit

The Justice League compared two Roald Dahl characters Mrs Twit and Grandma from George's Marvellous Medicine. 

WALT – Compare two Roald Dahl Characters

Roald Dahl created many classic characters in his books such as Charlie, Mr Fox, Matilda, The BFG and James with his Giant peach. Two memorable characters are Mrs Twit and Grandma from George’s Marvellous Medicine. These two characters share many similarities such as being old, ugly, gross, getting tricked and being mean to children.

Firstly Roald Dahl made each character disgusting and gross. Mrs Twit made spaghetti with worms and hid her glass eye in Mr Twit’s beer. Where as Grandma ate beetles, cockroaches and other bugs. We think Grandma though is the most gross because eating bugs is worse than making someone else eat them.

Roald Dahl also made both characters extremely ugly. Grandma had pale brown teeth and a mouth like a puckered up dog’s bottom. On the other hand Mrs Twit had yellow teeth, a wonky glass eye and ugly thoughts that showed on her face. We believe Mrs Twit was the uglier character because her ugly thoughts made her grow uglier by the passing year.

Both characters also got tricked in their stories. Grandma was tricked into drinking George’s marvellous medicine, which made her grow tall, and eventually shrink until she disappeared. However Mrs Twit was tricked into thinking she was shrinking and was stretched by balloons. We agree that Mrs Twit got tricked the worst because she was stretched by balloons and was also made to stand on her head until she disappeared.

Overall we believe that Mrs Twit is the most disgusting, gross, ugly and cruel character that Roald Dahl created.  Some people may argue that Grandma is worse but as you can see from the reasons above Mrs Twit is simply AWFUL.

We believe our comparison is extended abstract because we gave several similarities and differences, explained our reasons and made an overall statement.
