From the first publication of The Bobsey Twins in 1904 to titles published in 1992, Storey annotates over 300 books that feature twins. Readers will be able to locate popular stories as well as some of the finest children's and adolescent literature in the country, and they will be able to track characters through a number of information sources. The author summarizes each book, describes the family life of the twins in it and the characters' feelings about being twins, and lists topics pertinent to the story. An unusual feature of the bibliography is the inclusion of comments made by authors who have shared their reasons for writing about twins. An index shows whether the twins are main, secondary, or minor characters.
