A great dual read-aloud! Recommended By Kim T., Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
This brand-new series by a popular screenwriter is a pitch-perfect, contemporary comedy featuring twelve-year-old fraternal twins, Claudia and Reese, who couldn't be more different... except in their determination to come out on top in a vicious prank war! But when the competition escalates into an all-out battle that's fought from the cafeteria of their New York City private school all the way to the fictional universe of an online video game, the twins have to decide if their efforts to destroy each other are worth the price.
Told as a colorful "oral history" by the twins and their friends, and including photos, screenshots, chat logs, online gaming digital art, and text messages between their clueless parents, The Tapper Twins is a hilariously authentic showcase of what it's like to be in middle school in our digitally-saturated world.
"This uproarious series opener...is packed with both laugh-out-loud moments and heart."
Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Appealing to tween digital natives and fans of 'Origami Yoda'...and 'Charlie Joe Jackson'....A fine beginning to a funny, new middle grade series." School Library Journal
