Shout Out: Double Trouble series

Meet Tommy and Coop, 7-year-old identical twins who love to get up to mischief. If there is an opportunity for a prank or an adventure, they’ll be there.

Double Trouble is a new junior fiction series for young readers in the style of Ella and Olivia. The two brothers find ways to turn every activity into something fun. From skateboard competitions to school camp, they can’t resist any opportunity for a practical joke. Together, they are definitely Double Trouble.

The series is particular focused on engaging boys with the funny antics of Tommy and Coop, but the stories will appeal to any readers who enjoy funny stories filled with practical jokes and silliness. With larger text and illustrations by Louis Shea, these early readers are ideal for children transitioning from picture books to first chapter books and reluctant readers.

The first four books in the series were released in 2014:
Prank Alert by Fiona Regan (ISBN: 9781742838564)
Skateboard Stars by Felicity Carter (ISBN: 9781742838571)
