Book Description

1 Sep 2013 The Templeton Twins
The second book in a funny and adventurous new series by a bestselling adult author and award-winning children's book illustrator. In this book, Abigail and John Templeton have moved with their father--Professor Templeton--to a school for performing arts--where the professor is charged with inventing a ground-breaking theatric device, and the twins (and their dog) once again find themselves having to thwart the dastardly Dean brothers in order to save the invention, their father and the dog.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review by Evan - Year 8 12 Jun 2014
As you would expect, The Templeton Twins is about twins, Abigail and John, who are the son and daughter of a world famous inventor. He is about to create a device which could fetch millions but somebody is trying to take the credit for it. The twins will stop at nothing to make sure their father gets what is rightfully his. I feel that the Twins each boast qualities that will be put to very good use at the climax. On numerous occasions they have to work together, complimenting each of their strengths, aided by people who they believe are annoying, but are actually their friends.

The best parts of the book is when the narrator gets up to his antics and begins talking about how brilliant he is. He is not afraid to show his seeming dislike for us readers if we haven’t read the first book. However, the best thing about it is how if you haven’t read the first book, it doesn’t affect your enjoyment of the second. You don’t miss out on anything that is vital to your understanding of the story.

The way the characters develop, is one of the ways I think the story is kind to those who haven’t read the first book despite how unkind the narrator is if that is the case. My favourite character would be the boss of the Twins Dad. She steals the show when she is in the room and is portrayed truly brilliantly! It is one of the few books that will make you laugh out loud. Tell your friends, make them laugh as well :)

Unfortunately, some parts of the book were not quite as good as they could have been. The characters don’t get old but I feel that the narrators jokes did at times. At first, I think that when he was talking about how amazing he is and how disappointed he was if we hadn’t read the first book was quite funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it 3 Jan 2014

When I read the first few words of The Templeton Twins Make a Scene: Book 2, I knew it would be good. I love the introduction about the notes of apology which were hilarious. I also like how the author is self centered and talks about himself after the chapters. I think this book is good for anyone who is having a bad day and needs some cheering up. It'll make you laugh out loud and you'll be sad once it's over. The author makes sure you love it, not hate it even by not letting you answer the 'for further study questions' with a bad answer. For example, the answers you can pick for "The Narrator continues to do: a. an excellent job b. a superb job, c. a magnificent job, and d. just a really great, great job." are all positive. The story itself makes you laugh and laugh as long as you're reading it. I recommend this and you will never regret it.
