Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jody Little
The cross-country road trip and zany adventures of twins, Coke and Pepsi McDonald, continue in this third book in the "Genius Files" series. This story begins in Washington D.C. where the family is attending the wedding of their Aunt Judy. The twins are shocked to see that the man their aunt is marrying is none other than the evil Dr. Warsaw, whom the twins thought was dead! As the family continues their travels, stopping at strange tourist attractions, the twins begin to sense that they are being followed and watched by weird Elvis Presley impersonators. Eerie things begin to happen. They receive strange coded messages which Coke attempts to decipher. They survive freak accidents like almost getting smashed by a giant chest of drawers. They manage to escape a giant shredder in the World of Coke in Atlanta, Georgia. The story comes to a climax in Tennessee where the family visits Graceland, the home of Elvis Presley. There they meet their Aunt Judy and Dr. Warsaw once again, and the only way to save themselves is to use the secret Frisbee grenade in Pepsi's backpack. Author Gutman weaves the far-fetched adventures of two reluctant heroes with a geography lesson of the United States as well as an introduction to some of the weirdest travel destinations in the country, like the world's largest chest of drawers and the world's largest frying pan. Photographs of the attractions and website suggestions are included throughout the book. Reviewer: Jody Little
