The Twits

the twits

‘The Twits’ is a humorous children’s book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake. Dahl hated beard and it is evident in the first line of the story, “What a lot hairy-faced men there are around now a days!”

Mr. Twit is a wicked person, having hair that covers his entire face. Mrs. Twit is the hideously ugly, menacing wife of Mr. Twit whose former beauty was destroyed as a result of constant horrible thoughts over time. It is an extremely funny and interesting book loved by children and adult alike.

Mr. and Mrs. Twit are the smelliest, ugliest people in the world. They hate everything except playing mean jokes on each other, catching innocent birds to put in their bird pics, and making their caged monkeys, the Muggle-Wumps, stand on their heads all day. But the Muggle Wumps want revenge. It makes a very interesting story, which I recommend to all my friends.

Mr. Twit is a nasty, horrible man of 60 years of age who is married to Mrs. Twit who is an extremely mean person. Their actions reflect their cruel nature but at the end hilarious thing happens to them. Mr. Twits spends his days playing cruel tricks on Mrs. Twit, using glue to catch birds to eat, and forcing his pet monkeys to do upside down tricks. The funny part happens when the birds and monkeys avoid the glue traps and Mr. and Mrs. Twits have their heads doused with glue and find their home inside upside down. The twits are two strongest characters of Roald Dahl.
