The Unwilling Twin
Angus & Robertson, 2020
32pp., hbk., RRP $A24.99
Jules and George are the same in every way. It is quite impossible to tell them apart. They even have matching birthmarks on their bottoms.
And like all twins, they do everything together including having a long, hot day at the beach. But sometimes, even twins disagree…
This is a charming story for littlies that will help them believe in the fun and magic in books, for there is a twist to the story which they will delight in pointing out right from the start. Eagle eyes might even spot it on the front cover! Nevertheless, they will soon be immersed in it as they go to the beach with Jules and George and relive their own memories (or build their imaginations if going to the beach is just a dream.) The ending is LOL funny – Freya Blackwood hasn’t lost her ability to entertain with both words and pictures.
