Synopsis

Twit and Howlet and the Balloon by

Howlet and Twit are the youngest members of the Owl family. They are twins. Sometimes they are indulged and sometimes they are sat upon, just like everyone else. But one day Twit and Howlet build themselves a home-made hot-air ballon and lift themselves away from the nightly rows about the television. Up, up, up they drift into the unknown with their Wellingtons, sun-spectacles and mousewhiches. Climb aboard Twit and Howlet's home-made ballon adventure. What will they see floating high up and away through sunsets and rainstorms? Where will their journey end? The South Pole? Devon? Belgium, perhaps?

'I have no doubt that discovering Barbara Jones was one of the more important things that happened to me'

About the Author

BARBARA JONES (1912-1978) was born in Croydon, Surrey,where her family ran a high street saddlery. She studied at the Croydon School of Art and the Royal College of Art, in the footsteps of Edward Bawden, John Piper and Eric Ravilious. Like them, she was interested in the architecture, landscape and the folk and decorative arts of Britain. During the Second World War she was commissioned by The Pilgrim Trust to document historic buildings at risk from war damage. The paintings she produced were included in the landmark publication Recording Britain (1946-1949) and are now held at the Victoria& Albert Museum. She was a prolific illustrator of books, and wrote and illustrated several of her own, including Twit and Howlett, Follies and Grottoes and The Unsophisticated Arts.
