Pitcherville has been a weird place ever since a mysterious force field dropped over the town. First, the town was sudsy with thousands of bubbles, then all the words spoken and written down became numbers, and after that everything and everyone turned the same exact color – peach!
Rodney and Wayne McCall to the rescue! The two thirteen-year old identical twins look exactly alike but Rodney’s face is usually buried in a book while Wayne’s is usually buried in a pie. Working with their sassy friend Becky and their scientist neighbor Professor Johnson, the team always manages to get things back to normal.
When everyone suddenly wakes up eleven-and-a-half years younger than the night before, the grownups are thrilled. Rodney and Wayne, however, are not happy to be turned into drooling toddlers. How can they save their town when they can’t even reach a doorknob?
Zany and delightful, The Calamitous Adventures of Rodney & Wayne, Cosmic Repairboys: Book One: The Age Altertron is the first book in a new series for kids, where science plus silliness equals laughter.
