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?!).

display_description The twelve-year-old twins John and Abigail Templeton are both clever, pragmatic, theoretical, and cryptic. Their father is sort of a brilliant scientist, and because of that the adult twins Dean D. Dean and Dan D. Dean kidnap John and Abigail to hold them for ransom in order to get one of Mr. Templeton's inventions. The twins use their brains and eventually figure things out.
