This book was absolutely delightful - a must read for all fans of a good middle grade. The Templeton Twins Have an Idea is quirky and fun in a uniquely formatted book.

Jeremony Holmes's illustration and way The Templeton Twins Have an Idea is set up makes it very accessible for all readers. The book is very fun to read and the format only enhances that. Each chapter ends with silly questions which really made me engage with the book even more.

The characters are oh so quirky - they all bring something different to the story. Abigail has her unique puzzles, while John has his drums. The book has a Narrator telling the story who is absolutely charming. Much of the time, the Narrator is fishing for compliments or dropping a hint about how great he was, which was pretty fun.

Reminiscent of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, The Templeton Twins Have an Idea is a book that will charm the socks off you. I can think of no other way to describe it but clever. I cannot wait for the follow up novel, The Templeton Twins Make a Scene, which is due on in September.
