Interest Age 9+ Reading Age 8+. This is non-stop comedy involving twin boys who discover that when they reach 12 and a half they have the most extraordinary talents, but using their powers without causing chaos all around could be more difficult. You’ll laugh-out-loud, in fact you may even cry with laughter so be prepared. Rest assured you’ll be hooked from page one. Author Michael Lawrence and illustrator Chris Mould are both hugely respected and liked in the children’s book world.
