The story is about the Templeton Twins, surprise, surprise, and their father who is an inventor. The story begins:
A) Shortly after the death of the Templeton Twins' mother
B) With the arrival of a VERY TALL, VERY WIDE, iguana
C) After a long time of the Narrator trying to put off writing the story
D) Both A & C
If you guessed B, I am sorry to inform you there is no VERY TALL, VERY WIDE, iguana in this story. There is the sadness of a recently deceased mother, and there is the fact that the Narrator is desperately trying not to write this book. Because of one of these facts (probably the first) their father has become increasingly sad, so their father decides to:
A) Take a new position at a new college, where he will invent new things.
B) Lay down and take a nap.
C) Sell the Templeton Twins to an Arabian with camels.
The answer, of course, has nothing to do with camels, nor with naps.
BUT alas! There is a STRANGE MAN at the new school that is ACCUSING the Templeton Twins' father of STEALING the STRANGE MAN'S ideas. What will occur next? Will the Templeton Twins:
A) Get abducted by the STRANGE MAN and his brother?
B) Get to eat ice cream until they puke?
C) Get watched over by a ridiculous nanny?
D) Both A & C
E) Who cares?
This book was highly amusing and I think it would be enjoyed by Down Unders who enjoyed reading:
A) A Series of Unfortunate Events, by Lemony Snicket
B) The Name of This Book is Secret, by Pseudonymous Bosch
C) Other books that involve interesting inventions, smart Down Unders, and snarky Narrators.
D) All of the Above, Of Course.
Not only is this book a fun read with resourceful twins, it also includes a recipe for meatloaf. So what are you doing? Get up and get yourself a copy at either:
A) Barnes & Noble
C) An Indie Bookstore near you
