Tapper twins, Claudia and Reese, are back in their second hilarious adventure.
This time Claudia’s set up the first-ever “Culvert Prep Scavenger Hunt for
Charity,” a competition which will pit teams of students against each other in
a race to collect pictures of some of the biggest and most obscure sights in
New York City. With the winning prize being front row seats to Madison Square
Garden, this time it’s not just the twins and their opposing teams ready to go
to all-out war, but their entire school — and some not-so-well-meaning parents
as well! With episodes of plush-toy abuse, a sudden jelly bean shortage, severe
rule-bending, and several near riots, the twins and their fellow students tear
up New York City in an attempt to win a set of once-in-a-lifetime tickets —
and, though they may have forgotten it, to raise money for a good cause. Told
as an oral history through texts, screenshots, smartphone photos, and interview
transcripts, this sequel packs all of the hilarious punch of the first. Your
young readers will be grinning from ear to ear as they’re taken around New York
City on this wild, scavenger hunt of a lifetime. Ages 8-12. 288pp.
