3th Grade and Up

Although it’s a drag to be constantly mistaken for each other, in truth, during those first days at a new school, there’s nothing better than having a twin brother there with you. But on day one of sixth grade, Ray stays home sick, and Jay is on his own. No big deal. It’s a pretty nice school, good kids, too. But Jay quickly discovers a major mistake: No one seems to know a thing about his brother. Ray’s not on the attendance lists, doesn’t have a locker, doesn’t even have a student folder. Jay almost tells the school — almost — but then decides that this lost information could be very…useful. And fun.


An entertaining story about the ultimate twin switch-a-roo with a message of the importance of being seen as an individual instead of one in a pair of twins. I can’t imagine what it would be like to have a twin, fraternal or identical.


A point I want to make here is that twins should have different sounding separate names. Ray and Jay’s names are so similar that even in written form it’s hard to tell them apart. And don’t under any circumstances do what this mother did in the following Baby Blues comics:

I know this is a lot of comics, but I needed to share all of them to make my point.
