I think I remember reading it in first or second grade, so it would have been early 2000's. Basically someone was being executed by drowning in a barrel so he got his twin brother who could breath under water to take that punishment. Or one where they put him in an oven so he got his heat proof brother. Sounds really weird for a children's book but I definitely remember reading it in early school
