Take Two!
A Celebration of Twins

authors: J. Patrick Lewis; Jane Yolen
illustrator: Sophie Blackall

Old twins, new twins, famous twins, not-at-all-alike twins, side-byside twins, let's play twins, not-yet twins, mirror twins — all kinds of twins! — come together in a collection of original poems by two of our most celebrated authors for young people: J. Patrick Lewis and Jane Yolen. From a wave and a wink to a twin switcheroo, from a rocket to the moon to the old woman who lived in a shoe, these poems and mini facts, whimsically illustrated by Sophie Blackall, will leave even singletons with a twinkle in their eyes. Here is the perfect book to share with the twins in your life — and everyone who loves them.

Know some twins, or expecting to? This twinspired collection pairs poems and pictures in a lighthearted salute to the many twins among us.

author’s comments:
J. Patrick Lewis is the current Children’s Poet Laureate. A twin himself, he has written more than seventy children’s books, including Once Upon a Tomb: Gravely Humorous Verses. “Being a twin is the third best thing that has ever happened to me,” he says, “after having wonderful children and grandchildren of my own and eating my mom’s apple dumplings.” J. Patrick Lewis lives in Ohio.

Jane Yolen, not a twin herself—but with multiple sets in her family—has written or edited more than three hundred books, including the poetry collections Switching on the Moon, illustrated by G. Brian Karas, and Here’s a Little Poem, illustrated by Polly Dunbar. She is also the author of the best-selling How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?, illustrated by Mark Teague. Jane Yolen divides her time between Massachusetts and Scotland.

Sophie Blackall has illustrated numerous books, including Deborah Noyes’s Red Butterfly; Rukhsana Khan’s Big Red Lollipop, a New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Book; and Annie Barrows’s best-selling Ivy and Bean series. Sophie Blackall lives in Brooklyn.
