Cally and Jimmy: Twintastic

By Zoe Antoniades
Illustrated by Katie Kear

Four short stories in one! A fantastic set of stories about a girl and her twin brother who has ADHD. They always seem to be in double trouble!

Cally has a twin brother Jimmy, and he is always getting into some kind of mischief - which usually means double trouble! Thankfully their Greek granny is usually on hand to help - or add to the mayhem! In these four fab stories, the twins make a splash on their beach holiday, run into trouble on sports day, get spooked while trick or treating, and uncover a thief at school.

  • Praise for Cally and Jimmy: 'Your kids need this lovely book' Kate Beckinsale
  • Featuring a neurodiverse character, a Greek Cypriot family and their witty grandmother
  • Perfect for newly confident readers
