Lots of you, I know, know who the Twits are but if you don’t then here is a little information all about them and the Roald Dahl story.
A hideous, vindictive, spiteful couple known as the Twits live together in a brick house without windows. They continuously play nasty practical jokes on each other out of hatred for one another, ranging from Mr. Twit hiding a frog in his wife’s bed that he claims is a monster, to Mrs. Twit tricking her husband into eating worms in his spaghetti. They also keep a family of pet monkeys, the Muggle-Wumps. The Twits, who are retired circus trainers, are trying to create the first upside-down monkey circus, leaving the monkeys to stand on their heads for hours on end. Mr. Twit coats tree limbs with a strong glue Hugtight in hopes of catching birds for Mrs. Twit to make into a bird pie. The monkeys try to warn the birds, but since the monkeys speak in an African language, the English birds cannot understand them, so the poor birds wind up boiling in Mrs. Twit’s pie. One week, the Roly-Poly bird flies in from Africa to visit the monkeys, and acting as an interpreter of languages, keeps the birds from sitting anywhere Mr. Twit has spread glue. Mr. Twit tries several times to catch the birds, spreading the glue on an increasing number of perches, but the Roly-Poly bird changes his warning to reflect the new traps. The Muggle-Wumps, tired of being forced to stand on their heads, with the help of the birds use Mr. Twit’s powerful glue to attach the couple’s furniture to their ceiling while they are away to trick them into thinking that they are upside down and that their ceiling is actually their floor. The birds also smear glue on the Twits’ heads, which permanently fixes them to the ground when a panicked Mr. Twit suggests that they stand on their heads so that they are ‘the right way up’ after they first walk into the upside down living room. Stuck on their heads with all their weight pressing down on them, they catch the ‘Dreaded Shrinks’ (a disease that Mr. Twit had convinced Mrs. Twit that she had earlier in the book as one of the pranks), their bodies compressing ‘downwards’ so that they eventually shrink away into nothing, leaving the Muggle-Wumps free to escape.
