Goode Neighbours

Plot

Twins Jo and Jill Davie are intrigued when the Goode family move in next door. But they soon find there is something very odd about the Goodes. For one thing , they seem to possess super strength and don’t show emotion. They also seem to be out to take things over with the expression “Whatever I’ll do, it’ll be for your own good. I will look after you.” Things get even weirder when the Davie twins encounter doubles of themselves who seem to be just the same. Eventually the Davie twins discover the Goode family are robots.
