The Twits

Have you read 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl?  He truly is a magician, the way he writes for small people is incredible. 

I think big people can learn a lot from him too.

If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face.  And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it.

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly.  You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
(The Twits by Roald Dahl)
