If I had a shelf talker, this is what I'd say about "The Templeton Twins Make A Scene"

After the alarming and uproarious events depicted in the first book in this series, The Templeton Twins Have An Idea (which revolved around clever twins John and Abigail Templeton, their inventor father Professor Templeton, and the efforts of the quite dastardly twins Dean D. Dean and his brother Dan D. Dean to steal the professor's inventions), the family returns in book two, The Templeton Twins Make A Scene. They have moved on to a new school, TAPAS (The Thespian Academy of the Performing Arts and Sciences), where the Professor has been hired to invent a new device that will revolutionize the theatre-going experience. This time around, there are mysterious warning messages, a too-helpful male nanny named Manny, and the careful reader will not be surprised when the naughty Dean brothers show up. The quite-opinionated Narrator is also present, narrating away and providing end-of-chapter quizzes to make sure you're paying attention to the story.
