Despite that Mr & Mrs Twit are mean, nasty, cruel, smelly and ugly (haha). I'm still a fan of this particular Roald Dahl title. I have this exact first edition published in 1980, when then I was only one year old. My brother and sisters must remember this book too since we grew to quarrel over it a lot. Thanks to my mum and dad who cherish our childhood stuff - including books, work sheets, toys, and drawings - The Twits we own is still in one good piece in our little library at my parents house.
