Our new books for teenagers (and pre-teens and young adults) feature a series of adventures where the readers control the story! With 24 story endings between the three books, your kids will be able to observe the outcomes of different economic and political situations that Ethan and Emily—age 15 in this new book series—encounter and have to figure out.
Book 1: The Tuttle Twins and the Hyperinflation Devastation
5 possible endings; 405 pages of content!
It’s the perfect vacation: the Tuttle twins have saved their money, planned things out thoroughly, and are ready to head off to South America to water ski, hike the jungles, and see some of the world’s oldest ruins. What could go wrong?
Nearly everything, as it turns out. But that’s for you to decide.
You’re in the driver seat of the story to determine what the consequences will be. Will you send Ethan and Emily to the ruins, know- ing that they are tough, smart, and well-prepared? Or will you keep them in the capital city so they remain connected with the outside world, just in case things go wrong? You make the decisions—and see the consequences unfold.
Along the way, you’ll learn about inflation, community, cryptocurrency, and some of the lengths people are willing to go in a Hyperinflation Devastation!
Book 2: The Tuttle Twins and the Little Pink House
10 possible endings; 496 pages of content!
The Tuttle twins are off to visit Grandma’s quaint, pink house on the banks of the Monongahela river to celebrate Independence Day. There are parades and rope swings, and all the things that make a vacation grand.
But it’s not all fun and games. When a greedy corporation schemes to take over Grandma’s land and push her house into the river, can the twins stop it and come to her rescue? Can you help them?
Should the twins befriend the quirky, secretive editor of the local paper? Go searching for a river monster? Investigate the strange people north of town? Should they go it on their own, or get some new friends involved?
It’s all up to you—the zoning fights, the referendum, the ancient artifacts—and your decisions will guide the twins either to victory or defeat. Can you save the Little Pink House?
Book 3: The Tuttle Twins and the Case of the Broken Window
9 possible endings; 279 pages of content!
It’s a perfect day for a game of baseball, and the Tuttle twins are determined to finally beat the rival team from the neighborhood. The game-winning home run from Emily gets them what they want… along with a whole lot of trouble they could never have expected.
Can they figure out how to make things right with the owners of the broken window? What if they get help from you?
You’re there every step of the way as the twins face scheming salesmen, a fleet of bulldozers, and a city out of control. Will the twins face the police and an irate priest? Will they do what it takes to stop some new friends from losing their homes? What about the garden-gnome-come-to-life named Goofer?
They’re all here for you to meet, and no one can save the twins from the consequences of the broken window—no one but you.
What Makes Our Books So Different? (a note from the publisher about their books in general, not this teen series specifically)
When it comes to teaching their children about the enduring principles of freedom, many parents don't know where to start. The Tuttle Twins series helps you introduce these ideas to your children and have meaningful family discussions about them.
As a father, I know how hard it is to communicate big ideas to little kids. For example, how do you teach an eight-year-old boy about the free market in a way that will be relevant to him? How can a six-year-old girl understand property rights? How can your child learn about and remember the golden rule?
And more than getting them to learn about the ideas… how do you get them to actually care about them?
As the founder and president of a thriving non-profit, and the author of 22 books, I've spent years trying to figure out simple and effective ways of teaching other people important principles. Along the way I came to realize something: kids can understand these ideas, too.
And so the Tuttle Twins books were born! These totally unique books help kids age 5-11 learn important truths and develop crucial critical thinking skills. 150,000+ families just like yours have benefitted from the clear messages and fun stories in these books.
More importantly, these families have been able to have some amazing conversations about big ideas—even with their little children. Get the books today and watch your child develop important critical thinking skills and insight about ideas that most adults don't even understand.
