9780142420560: We Are Not Eaten by Yaks (An Accidental Adventure)

Eleven-year-old twins Oliver and Celia Navel could care less about adventure and they really do not like excitement. They’d rather be watching television. Unfortunately for them, their thrill-seeking parents have dragged them from continent to continent their entire lives. But when their mother goes missing and their father makes a bet with the devious explorer Sir Edmund, the twins are forced into action. They head to Tibet where they fall out of airplanes, battle Yetis, poison witches, and encounter one very large yak.  If they can unravel the mysteries and outwit Sir Edmund, they might just make the discovery of a lifetime . . . and get cable television!

From Booklist:

Twins Oliver and Celia Navel hate adventures. They would rather watch television, but their parents are world-famous explorers. Then their mother goes missing, and the twins accompany their father to Tibet in search of her. There, they encounter a yeti and witches and battle the evil and diminutive explorer, Sir Edmund Titheltorpe-Schmidt III. Fortunately, their vast television watching has given them enough useful ideas to help overcome the obstacles in their way, and readers learn that in a future series installment, the formerly safe and sedentary Navel twins will try to recover the lost library of Alexandria. The many sarcastic and ironic remarks grow somewhat tiresome as the long story wears on, but among the many recent novels that feature kids who fearlessly save the world, however, this one stands out for its funny take on the theme. Grades 5-8. --Todd Morning
