The Templeton Twins Make a Scene - a Literary Lunch

This lunch is also posted over at The Little Crooked Cottage as a Literary Lunch. Head over to the fabulous blog of four children's book authors and check out the wonderful Literary Interviews with Mr. Pig himself!

THE TEMPLETON TWINS MAKE A SCENE is book two of the hilarious Templeton Twin series written by Ellis Weiner and illustrated by Jeremy Holmes. If you have not read book one THE TEMPLETON TWINS HAVE AN IDEA we highly recommend you do! This book is filled with kid-friendly humor, suspense, silliness and many serious words. The narrator is as much part of the book as the reader and gives the reader a quiz after every chapter just to make sure you paid attention. This time around Abigail and John have to outsmart the Dean brothers again, rescue their father and dog and of course the important invention their father built for TAPAS. A must-read for all suspense loving readers!

We packed a suspenseful lunch for clever kids in our Easylunchboxes:
  • The Narrator's Guacamole which is mostly coleslaw (recipe in the book) decorated with a few tools one needs to build clever inventions.
  • An apple to stay healthy and smart with a Cryptic Crossword* and Cassie, the Ridiculous Dog.
  • A very filling ham and salad sandwich with the Templeton Twins in bread, cheese and German edible paper - I know, I know you expected beef tacos** but ham sandwiches are much easier to eat on the go!

* Abigail loves solving Cryptic Crossword puzzles and this clearly stands for The Templeton Twins!
** If you read the book, you would know why. Go read the book!

I nearly forgot to show you our favorite page. Although nearly every page was our favorite page. But, this one was just a little more loved. It has the word "Poopyhead"on it so it must be the best page ;)

We really loved the blueprint inspired illustrations throughout the book and the enjoyed the details they added to the story. If you love guacamole or coleslaw and suspense, action and pop quizzes this book is for you! It was hard to put down for both me and my 9 year old! Go read it! You won't regret it!
