The Hero Twins -Against the Lords of Death by Dan Jolley illustrated by David Witt

In graphic/comic style, the reader goes on an adventure with the Mayan twins, Hunter and Jaguar.  With their special powers, they trick/tease people and have great fun.  When they play the ball Pok-Ta-Pok, they annoy the Lords of the underworld.   The big question is: Can they outwit the Lords of the underworld?
Very exciting and full of adventure.  This book (and series of Graphic Myths and Legends from Graphic Universe) will appeal to boys and reluctant readers.
Warning: I would "highly recommend" it but the one twin loses his head and his head is used for a ball.  There is no blood but it is rather gross/violent!
My fourth grader read this to himself and loved it.  He wants to reread it and read other titles in this series.
-Borrowed from the library.
