Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Neezer and Lucky, two unsavory characters, rescue orphaned Taddy from the workhouse. Taddy slaves away at Neezer's tavern hoping that his grandfather's last words-to find his twin, so that he will know who he is-will free him. A wonderful Gothic novel in which good does triumph. Edgar Allan Poe Award winner.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-A worthy successor to Peppermints in the Parlor (Aladdin, 1985), filled with orphans, musty passages, mysterious relatives, and despicable villains. This book turns Alexandria, VA, into a delightfully murky, New-World version of London past. Young Taddy is found by scavenging thieves as he cowers in the house of his recently dead aunt and uncle. Rather than face the workhouse, he submits to being hauled off to be a servant in their tavern, which is smack in the heart of the town where he was told by his dying uncle to look for his twin and find out his true identity. At the Dog's Tail, he is renamed ``Toady,'' is made to sleep under the kitchen table, and must share that tiny space with an artful dodger who revels in his sudden seniority. The wretched treatment of the boys will inspire young readers to outraged demands for justice-and they won't be disappointed. With a fine hand for Gothic embroidery and a nifty surprise conclusion that ties up all the loose ends, Wallace has delivered another very satisfying read.-Sally Margolis, Deerfield Public Library, IL

    'Twin' is twice as nice.

    Few authors can catch the same sense of suspense time after time. Ms. Wallace has done so beautifully. 'The Twin In The Tavern' a book that time after time is still a delightfully smart mystery. It's as good the fourth time you read it as it is the first. A must for any Barbara Brooks Wallace fan. If you're not a fan, you will be after reading this.

    A Pretty Good Book

    It all starts out when Taddy Buntz's aunt and uncle die. He is very afraid that he will be sent to the workhouse because he has become an orphan. Two men come and take the stuff from Taddy's home, like the table and chairs. They take him with them and force him to work at their motel. There he meets Beetle. That is where the story takes off!
