The Twits

Reading The Twits by Roald Dahl for the first time in prison was an absurd and surreal experience as I smirked and chuckled like I was a child once again. Roald Dahl could be described as the thinking man’s Dr. Seuss, or perhaps he’s actually more like the next logical step for a young curious reader searching for something to tickle their imagination. Either way, The Twits is true to Dahl’s established form as it is perfectly silly and utterly enjoyable. In this age of excess it would be a shame if Mr. Dahl’s fantastically crafted imaginings were lost to antiquity in favor of something deemed better simply because it’s newer. As far as introductions go, The Twits is as good a place as any to start one’s relationship with the incomparable Roald Dahl.
