The Terrible Two

Book: The Terrible Two
Series: The Terrible Two #1
Author: Mac Barnett, Jory John, Kevin Cornell (Illustrations) 

Miles Murphy is not happy to be moving to Yawnee Valley, a sleepy town that’s famous for one thing and one thing only: cows. In his old school, everyone knew him as the town’s best prankster, but Miles quickly discovers that Yawnee Valley already has a prankster, and a great one. If Miles is going to take the title from this mystery kid, he is going to have to raise his game.

It’s prankster against prankster in an epic war of trickery, until the two finally decide to join forces and pull off the biggest prank ever seen: a prank so huge that it would make the members of the International Order of Disorder proud.

In The Terrible Two, bestselling authors and friends Mac Barnett and Jory John have created a series that has its roots in classic middle-grade literature yet feels fresh and new at the same time.-Goodreads

Review: This is a cute middle grade book about a boy who moves to a new town and tries to establish himself as a prankster, only to discover one already exists. This was a book selection for my daughter's 5th grade book club and there where some good discussions around reinventing ones self. 

Grade: 3/5
