Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887802087, Paperback)

Frank and Hank Swank are different-not from each other, they're identical twins-but from everyone else. Their parents don't worry too much because the Swank boys are polite, and smart, and do well in school. But that all changes on the morning of their eighth birthday, when the boys wake up speaking a strange language: "Tediy, wo iro oaght yoirs eld?" "Oaght yoirs oich, thit mikos saxtoon an ill." Their parents consult dozens of experts, and none know what language Frank and Hank are speaking. None, that is, until they find Mrs. Wu and Mrs. Lu, language specialists who are also identical twins. Swank Talk is a story about the unique challenges, and unique advantages, faced by close siblings.
