The Dopple Ganger Chronicles is (currently) a three book series following the troublemaking Dopple twins and their friend Erik on happenstance adventures.

I chose these books to read as a part of the Tyndale Summer Reading Program because I was intrigued by the style of the books. These books are intended to help the reluctant reader learn to enjoy reading. I thought it was a great idea - part graphic novel, part regular novel...but how was the content?

Book 1: The First Escape

I was less than impressed with this book. While I loved the concept of the book layout, I did not like the fact that the Dopples were troublemakers who bullied their fellow orphans, and the only punishment they ever received was extreme, unjust, and from cruel headmistress.

Shouldn't we be teaching children how they ought to behave instead of giving them examples of bad behavior never handled appropriately? Where were the Christian values (after all, Tyndale is a Christian publishing company)?

It was also a strange book with a seance and creepy talking puppets. Thankfully, the hoax of it all is explained in the book, but it is not something I would want my young child to read. There is the unexplained very strange Madame Raphael (for whom more explanation is given in later books, but some things are just odd).

Also, the "mystery" wasn't what I expected. The book tells a story, but there's not much wondering whodunnit, or whosegonnadoit. Given the mixed style of the narrative, the book is much thinner than it appears (meaning the 200 some pages goes by fast). Overall, this is my least favorite of the DG Chronicles thus far.

I had previously started to read Shadowmancer by G.P. Taylor but hadn't gotten in too far before I set it aside so I wasn't expecting much out of his new series. The quote on the back cover of the book calling G.P. Taylor, "The new C.S. Lewis" didn't help either. Yet, sometimes out of nowhere there comes a revelation. When I opened The Secret of Indigo Moon, book two in The Dopple Ganger Chronicles I had one of those moments.

The story is standard fare for youth fiction. A young man and his twin friends live at a school for abandoned children and stumble upon a theft and decide to investigate. Enter their enemy from the first book, along with a soft-hearted henchman, and a cast of interesting if unoriginal characters and you have the ingredients for a story that any middle schooler would enjoy. But it wasn't the story that was the revelation. It was the presentation.

Open the book and you immediately find yourself in an amazing world of line art, comic book pages, fantastic fonts and typeset pages. Illustrations give form to the characters that imagination can sometimes leaves incomplete. Huge two-page drawings, like the clock on page 2 and 3, cause the reader to switch between reading to interpreting (you have to tell the time yourself,) and then back to reading on page 4 then to comics on pages 5 and 6. The multimedia experience keeps the reader involved from the start. I loved it!

It seems that anyone can write a teen fantasy judging from the volume of new titles on any bookstore shelf. But something different can serve to get a teen who perhaps doesn't read to become a reader or those give those who like to read something different. G.P. Taylor isn't the new C.S. Lewis but he did come up with a great idea for a series of books.

Again, this book was a fairly quick read. I didn't think the mystery was quite as intriguing as the first book, but it eventually drew me in and I just had to keep reading! I'm enjoying all of the new friends that Eric and the Dopple sisters meet, and the tunnel maze under the houses was a great twist (pun intended!). The Christian theme was a bit stronger (without being preachy) in this book. I liked how Saskia held true to her beliefs when the others gave her a hard time. God is presented in a unique way in this series, but somehow it works.

This is a great series for resistant readers. The books are action-packed so the plot moves along pretty quickly, which is key for hooking those non-readers! Parts of the stories are a bit "dark and twisty" but I think that upper elementary and middle school students will thoroughly enjoy them. Good grief, I'm way past that age and I LOVED them!

While the first book is still my favorite (so far at least!), I still thought this was a very good read. (3.5 stars)

Kids in this second book sneak around, stay out all night, and as to be expected in a city, are in danger from creepy adults. The headmistress who is supposedly OK shows signs of manic behavior-- smiling, then screaming; she is nonetheless the least dangerous of their enemies. The illustrations are fascinating. There are scary scenes, but I think men shooting guns at kids is over the line. I do appreciate the attempt the author made to develop the characters somewhat. He has them brood about their past, and try to deal with their feelings instead of ignoring them, as they had in the first book. The boy even shows a conscience. They still have no punishment for their rebellion and trespassing, etc. The only spiritual part is the being the girl believes is an angel. She gives good advice, if cryptic. She speaks in riddles. I suspect the kids will be pointed to salvation only in the third book. Her last riddle tells them, "Find the Man of Good-Bye Friday, and through his sorrows you will find joy." Hmmmm....
