Thwaites is Ronald Dahl´s friend from when Ronald was 7-9 years old, He was a kid who liked to mess around with the people around him making jokes, pranks and lying to people as well, as He did with Ronald telling him that some candies such as Liquorice Bootlaces were made of dead rats, as well that the Gobstoppers changed of colour while you lick them because “It´s your spirit that does it”(p.32), which of course, what Thwaites said in a normal basis was false but he even thought that it was true just because as it is stated in the book “As the son of a doctor, he considered himself to be an authority on all things that had to do with the body.”(p.32).
