Sinopsis:

"Milton and Morris, twins from England, survive shipwreck, squalor and sibling rivalry to become members of the court of Her Royal Majesty...Charmingly funny and original."-The New York Times.

"Thoroughly enjoyable."-Starred/School Library Journal

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-- Shipwrecks, beleaguered orphans, and unexpected twists of fate are just a few of the melodramatic elements in this newest offering by the creators of Hey, Al (1986) and Bravo, Minski! (1988, both Farrar). Twins Milton and Morris, on a voyage from England with their parents, sneak down to the ship's hold (which is full of fireworks), carrying a lantern and a crowbar. Disaster strikes as the twins struggle over a skyrocket, and so occurs the "sorry accident at sea" that supposedly orphans the boys and sets off a series of hard times. In desperation, they turn to a life of crime and, at last, their luck changes. They bungle as pickpockets and are adopted by their would-be victim, who takes them in and teaches them a trade--custom tailoring. They become so good at their work that they are invited to the Queen of England's court, where, as fate (or Yorinks) would have it, they are recognized by the gardener and nanny as the couple's long lost children. The playful interaction between words and pictures again demonstrates the effectiveness of the Yorinks and Egielski collaboration. The softly colored pictures are vintage Egielski, deceptively simple in design, but with a solidity and naturalness that offers a perfect counterpoint to Yorinks' deadpan text. Introductory illustrations slyly establish the relationship between the twins and foreshadow the trouble to come. Adults who share this book with children will appreciate Yorinks' wry humor, while kids are sure to enjoy the antics of the obnoxious twins. A totally absurd but thoroughly enjoyable addition for all picture-book collections. --Linda Boyles, Alachua County Library Dist . , Gainesville, FL NONFICTION
