Summary

The first English translation of a classic adventure involving two very different twins by the celebrated author of The Letter for the King.

Twins Jiacomo and Laurenzo look exactly the same - but they are as different as night and day. Hard-working Laurenzo wants to make beautiful things and becomes a goldsmith; Jiacomo loves travel and adventure and uses his wiles to become an excellent thief....

The goldsmith and the master thief can easily be mistaken for one another, and this gets them both into and out of all kinds of trouble. From a case of mistaken identity involving the Knight of the Red Rose to the pursuit of the precious silver cups of Talamura, the brothers find themselves caught up in wild adventures that require all of their combined wisdom and cunning.

Translated by Laura Watkinson.

Original composition by Jo Paterson.
