The twits are the worst kind of people you could ever imagine. They are a horrid couple who live in a cottage without windows. This is because Mr.Twit thinks it is irritating when people peep inside their house through windows. (isn't windows used to look outside rather than inside??) They are also retired circus trainers and hope to open the first upside-down monkey circus. Their ways of doing it is cruel. They also keep a family of pet monkeys and make them stand on their hands for hours together. The father of the monkey family is called Muggle Wump and the Twits made them do everything upside-down including eating, sleeping, walking and everything else. The monkeys hate them but they have to obey them because they know that if they do not obey them, then Mrs. Twit would beat them with her cane. You might think that the 2 are a evil pair but they they are surely not a pair because they hate each other as much as they hate others. They keep doing horrid stuff to each other like Mrs. Twit owns a glass eye. A glass eye is a fake eye which you can remove and put it back again. One day, Mrs. Twit puts her glass eye in Mr. Twit's mug and another day she made him eat worms saying it was spaghetti. Almost half of this book is filled with revenges that they take on each other. The Muggle Wump monkeys continue to be treated badly but now they have had enough and want revenge. This book is all about how the monkeys take revenge on the Twits with the help of the Rolly Polly bird.
