Summary
After one too many evil-spirited jokes by their owners, Mr. and Mrs. Twit, the nastiest and ugliest couple in town, their captive monkeys, the Muggle-Wumps, decide that it is time to teach them an important lesson and so organize the perfect plan for revenge. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: 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.
