Tommy and Coop love skateboarding almost as much as they love pranking people. One day, Jed Michael’s, one of their skateboarding heroes announcing a competition where the winner gets to go on his show. The twins are so excited, they just have to enter. Then they realise only one might get chosen, so they come up with a prank that, if it works, will give them both the chance to get on the show.

The twins are clever and tricky, this makes for a fun story. Though as a parent I’m not sure I’d want to be giving prank inclined kids more ideas, particularly as so many pranks are aimed at their parents. The series continues in the same vein as it began, simple language, fun action and expressive illustrations.
