Parents, if your kids are reluctant readers you want this book. If your kids aren’t reluctant readers you still want this book! As a teacher I can tell you that this is something most of my students would love. G.P. Taylor is an excellent storyteller. Eric Morrissey Ganger and the Dopple Twins are interesting and compelling characters that display an intriguing mix of mischief, mayhem, responsibility and fear — just like real kids.
The Secret of Indigo Moon (The Dopple Ganger Chronicles) is one of the highest quality graphic novels I have ever seen. From the full-color hardback cover to the heavy weight, thread-bound pages, it is evident that a great deal of care went into this book. The graphic presentation is a mixture of print, black-ink line drawings, and full color graphic panels and was created and designed through the collaboration of Daniel Boultwood, Luke Daab, and Tony Lee. This book was made to be read, and re-read, then read again.
From the Book Cover:
Erik Morissey Ganger, famed explorer and detective (well, in his dreams), and his mischief-making sidekicks, twins Sadie and Saskia Dopple, didn’t go looking for a secret tunnel beneath the school. They never intended to make the acquaintance of a shifty private eye with a nose for trouble. It wasn’t part of the plan to come face to face with an old enemy, one with an agenda of his own that could destroy them all. And unraveling the “secret of indigo moon” was the farthest thing from their minds.
At Isambard Dunstan’s School for Wayward Children, these things just seem to happen.
In The Secret of Indigo Moon (The Dopple Ganger Chronicles), confirmed troublemakers Erik, Sadie, and Saskia plunge headlong into a new and perilous mystery, one that challenges everything they thought they knew about their lives, themselves, and whom it’s safe to trust.
