If you're looking for the trope that could have gone here, see PlayingCyrano. Not to be confused with a ''literary'' [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghostwriter ghostwriter]], defined by ThatOtherWiki as "a writer who writes books, articles, stories, reports, or other texts that are officially credited to another person" (which frequently overlaps with ExtrudedBookProduct). Also not to be confused with the film ''Film/TheGhostWriter''.

Added DiffLines:

** While not exactly a younger sibling, Gabby sometimes treats Hector this way. The book "Disappearing Act" has her mentally comment that because [[HeroWorship Hector thinks so highly of Alex]], she's always arguing two people instead of one.


Added DiffLines:

* KnowsAGuyWhoKnowsAGuy: In the book "Disappearing Act", this pops up twice in discussions about how people are distantly connected to the Russian throne. Lampshaded both times.
** Example A
--> Vladimir: "How do you know?"..."No one besides our family knows that Alexis is the descendant of the third cousin once removed of the second cousin of Nicolas II."
--> Gaby: (to herself) The what of the who of the which?
** Example B
--> Alexis: "Leo Kropotkin-phooey!"..."He is only the descendant of the fourth cousin ''twice'' removed of the czar's great-aunt. Big deal!"
--> Gaby: (to Tina) "I'm not getting any of this stuff."
--> Tina: (with a giggle) [[JustForPun "It's all relative."]]

** A general one that was present in the TV show but cropped up ''a lot'' in the books: your child will get kidnapped and/or locked up in a location no one but their attacker knows about and may be unable to summon help ALA an incident in the books where a blindfolded and bound Hector who the crook abandons in the middle of a forest tries to write a message but barely manages anything readable and it's only luck that the rest of the team figures it out.



* BigNo: Gabby, in "Four Days of the Cockatoo", after hearing that Audubon Poulet and Honey Hawke about to peform taxidermy on her palm cockatoo, Calypso.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgottenPhlebotinum: Ghostwriter moves and rearranges existing letters to communicate. The team frequently has to guess at the gaps in his messages. And then in ''Who Is Max Mouse?'', [[HauntedTechnology he possesses a computer]], and in addition to [[TelephoneTeleport surfing the 'Net]], he ''gains the ability to write complete sentences '''at will'''''. Guess how many more times this comes up in the series.
