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?!).

            This author really created a funny atmosphere with a stuck up narrator and a nice dose of suspense was around every corner, the illustrator was also very nice at drawing things that go along with the story.

              This was an interesting adeventure and the author really made you feel like you were in the story and created his own character of the "narrator" who is full of himself and complains alot and really lifted up the story.

                This book was amazingly detailed. I don't know how the author does it! My favorite part was when I found out that Abigail was great at using words. Like for example, when she used the words "tedious" and "grim".
