About The Twits

“The Twits is a humorous children’s book written by Roald Dahl and illustrated by Quentin Blake. It was written in 1979, and first published in 1980. The Twits as a book has remained so successful since its publication in 1980 that it was adapted for the stage in 2007. The idea of The Twits was triggered by Dahl’s desire to “do something against beards”, because he had an acute dislike of them himself. The first sentence of the story is, “What a lot of hairy-faced men there are around nowadays!” A hideous, vindictive, spiteful couple known as the Twits live together in a brick house without windows with their abused, mistreated family of pet monkeys, the Muggle-Wumps, and they continuously play practical jokes on each other out of hatred for one another…” – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Twits
