In 1980, Roald Dahl's The Twits, featuring memorable illustrations by Quentin Blake, is published.

Roald's biographer Donald Sturrock quotes a nice phrase about The Twits in Storyteller, from a letter from editor Bob Gottileb to Roald. He said, "I like it VERY MUCH...You're right: what we want (or should want) for these little ones is stuff with meat, not the yuchy [sic] sweetly pretty material we're exposed to."
