The Templeton Twins Have An Idea
Jeremy Holmes, Ellis Weiner
Suppose there were 12-year-old twins, a boy and girl named John and Abigail Templeton. Let's say John was pragmatic and played the drums, and Abigail was theoretical and solved cryptic crosswords. Now suppose their father was a brilliant, if sometimes confused, inventor. And suppose that another set of twins—adults—named Dean D. Dean and Dan D. Dean, kidnapped the Templeton twins and their ridiculous dog in order to get their father to turn over one of his genius (sort of) inventions. Yes, I said kidnapped. Wouldn't it be fun to read about that? Oh please. It would so. Luckily for you, this is just the first in a series perfect for boys and girls who are smart, clever, and funny (just like the twins), and enjoy reading adventurous stories (who doesn't?!).

Profile Picture

John and Abigail are a normal (sort of) set of twins on a hair raising adventure through all sorts of trouble. They have a crazy inventor father who is the brain behind several crazy contraptions including the Personal One-Man Helicopter (POMH) and the Foot-Activated Compressed-Air-Powered Page-Turner with Clip on Mount (crazy…right?) When John and Abigail are kidnapped, they need a plan to escape. Their plan to get away from their kidnapper might just be outrageous enough to work. This funny, fast-paced story is a must read for anyone looking for a good adventure story.
