THE TWITS is another great book written by ROALD DAHL. Like his earlier books, this book is also illustrated wonderfully by QUENTIN BLAKE. The story is about Mr and Mrs Twits , who are nasty, ugly and beast like scary people with hair on their whole body. They hated children. They used to play pranks on each other, like putting frogs in bed, worms in spaghetti and glass eye in a bottle of bear. They had a massive house with a huge lawn. In the lawn was a big dead tree and a family of captured monkeys. The Twits used to treat the monkeys very badly. The poor monkeys had to stand upside down for six hours on one another. This story takes an interesting turn when they decide to take their revenge from the Twits. The events are highly intriguing and imaginative with a very apt ending where the Twits pay for their pranks. The moral of the story is that we should behave well also with animals who unfortunately can’t complain. It also tells us that whatever we do comes back to us. The characters in this book are very suitably named The Twits.
