The Twits are possibly the nastiest and most digusting of all Roald Dahl's characters. Frogs in beds; Eyeballs in drinks; Worms in spaghetti Mr and Mrs Twit are really disgusting. They smell because they never wash, they fight because they play tricks on each other, AND they hate children. But worst of all, they keep monkeys in their back garden. In cages. It's time for the monkeys to get their revenge on these two most revolting creatures . . . ***meet the Muggle-Wump monkeys and the Roly-Poly bird!*** ***with a great new cover by Quentin Blake, and a whole exciting section about Roald Dahl and his world*** 'A true genius . . . Roald Dahl is my hero' - David Walliams Roald Dahl, the best-loved of children's writers, was born in Wales of Norwegian parents. After school in England he went to work for Shell in Africa. He began to write after "a monumental bash on the head", sustained as an RAF pilot in World War II. Roald Dahl died in 1990.

From the Inside Flap:

Roald Dahl?s thrillingly grotesque book for young readers is now available in a gorgeous new gift edition, featuring the deliciously wicked artwork of Quentin Blake.
Mr. and Mrs. Twit are the smelliest, nastiest, ugliest people in the world. They hate everything?except playing mean jokes on each other, catching unsuspecting birds to put in their bird pies, and making their caged monkeys, the Muggle-Wumps, stand on their heads all day. But the Muggle-Wumps have had enough. With the help of Roly-Poly Bird, they set out to get some well-deserved revenge.
