The Twits by Roald Dahl

‘If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it.’ Roald Dahl

‘A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.’ Roald Dahl

Mr Twit kept a long beard and was a disgusting and ugly man. Mrs Twit was ugly and got even uglier as the years went by. The both of them liked to play nasty and malicious pranks on one another. The both of them owned 4 monkeys, which they kept in a cage. Mr Twit played super glue on the branches of the trees as he wanted to catch birds. 4 little boys were caught on the branches but managed to escape successfully. In the past, Mr and Mrs Twit tortured the monkeys in the circus. Now, a roly-poly bird came back and informed the other birds not to rest on the tree. Now, Mr Twit smeared the top of the cage with super glue as well. Mr and Twit went out to buy guns. The Roly-Poly bird found the key to the monkey’s cage and freed them. The monkeys and the birds pasted everything upside down on the ceiling of the living room. This would make the entire living room seem upside-down. Two ravens swooped by Mr and Mrs Twit and placed glue on their heads. The both of them stood with their heads on the floor as they thought that by standing upright they were in an incorrect orientation. Soon they realized that they were stuck and couldn’t move. Gradually, they shrank till they disappeared.
