Frank and Hank Swank are identical twins: they look exactly the same, their fingerprints are the same, their bellybuttons are the same. No one, not even their parents, can tell them apart.
They're like two pieces of a puzzle, like one person with the advantage of two bodies. Hank is good at sports and math. Frank is best at reading and geography. So they combine their talents to convince their teachers that they're the best single student in the school. When their teachers get suspicious, however, they talk to the Swank parents about their boys. Frank and Hank are identically worried.
The Swank Prank! is a story about the unique advantages, and unique challenges, faced by close siblings.close this panel
"Written in short chapters with lively black-and-white illustration, this brief novel would appeal to seven-to-nine-year-olds because of its theme, for what youngster has not fantasized about what it would be like to be a twin and be able to trade places with a brother or sister? I would recommend this book."
"Appealing covers and titles .... Great care has been taken to make these books look just like real 'big kids' novels."
