Both of them!

Against each other!

On September 6th, Claudia and Reese face off with the leadership of Culvert Prep’s sixth grade on the line.

And as they tend to do in Tapper Twins books, things get a little crazy.

How crazy?

I don’t want to spoil anything… But here’s a campaign poster from class troublemaker James Mantolini:

Books! And Pizza! In Greenwich Village!

Going to be in New York City on Friday, January 15th at 4:00pm? Come by the Jefferson Market Library at 6th Avenue and 10th Street for Books and Pizza, courtesy of the New York Public Library and the Jeff Market branch’s awesome youth librarian Rebecca Schosha! exterior_jeffersonmarket__3609

There will be pizza!

There will also be books!

Specifically, The Tapper Twins Go To War (With Each Other), which we’ll be discussing.

I’m not 100% sure, but I think you might have to be willing to discuss the book in order to get the pizza.

Also, I’ll be there! And I will happily answer any of your Tapper Twins-related questions! As long as my mouth isn’t full of pizza. And maybe even if it is.


Hope to see you there!
