Mitch and Amy both think being twins is fun, but that doesn't stop them from squabbling. Amy is good at reading. Mitch is a math whiz. Amy likes to play pretend. Mitch would rather skateboard. They never want to watch the same television show. And they always try to get the better of each other.

Then the school bully starts picking on Mitch-and on Amy, too. Now the twins have something rotten in common: Alan Hibbler. This twosome must set aside their squabbles and band together to defeat a bully!

          This book is about a twin brother and sister named mitch and amy who both have a bully thats name is alan hibler... this book is for ages 6-7 and up. it is a book that could happen but it did not really happen. the main idea is that the good guy always wins always no matter what happens. i did not like the character alan hibler because he is the bully. if i were the author i would end the book differently, I would end it by mitch and amy talking when Mitch stops running. i also recommend this book because of how good it is and a also give it 5 big stars. it was a fun book to read. i hope you also like it. enjoy! p.s this book is also for kids who like books that are books that could happen but it did not really happen and my favorite part is win alan hibiler (the bully) gets spoken up to stop being a bully. the part that i did not like the most (that was very boring) is when mitchel has trouble reading. this book is one of my favorite books and i hope you like it. enjoy!

              Mitch and Amy is such a cute and lovable story. It's obviously about Mitch and Amy. They are twins. When Alan the Bully shows off to Mitch one day by smoking a cigarette, Mitch starts laughing and his friends start to get mad and one finally breaks his home-made skateboard! Alan picks on Amy, too. He sat on her lunchbox! The twins learn to team up and defeat this horrible ragged beast.
