|I think it's the non-identical twins that can run in families - and they are more common than the identical anyway. Not sure quite how it works - you'd assume it must be the female line, but I don't think it works like that.|
|I read somewhere that writers love twins and editors hate
them! EBD must have had very patient editors! |
Having said that, they can run in families - I can't remember the details of which type of twins it is!
|According to my grandmother, twins skip a generation on
the mother's side (ie if your grandmother had twins, you would be like to
have them) but I'm pretty sure that's just an old wives tale!
Karl and Katchen Meltarni (Klara's siblings)
Richard and Ruhanna Jenning (Lois Bennet's cousins)
Where on earth are the Melnarti twins mentioned? I vaguely remember Klara, but never have heard of her sibs.
Similarly, where are Lois Bennet's cousins mentioned?
Hardback of Princess and hardback of Lavender, respectively - the first when Juliet and Joey meet Her Meltarni and the second when Lois is discussing her family.
Kevin and Kester are supposed to go to the Chalet school, but they never seem to actually arrive.
THe Melnarti twins are mentioned in the PB of Princess as well as the hardback.
