The Terrible Two by Mac Barnett and Jory John is a hilarious tale of pranksters at war.
Murphy is a prankster. He was the best prankster at his old school, and
now that his family has moved to boring Yawnee Valley, he fully expects
to be the best prankster at his new school. There's just one problem:
his new school already has a prankster. A really good one. Better than
Miles? Perhaps. The only way to settle the issue is, of course, a prank
war. The results are epic, but there's one thing that could top them:
the two pranksters working together on one enormous, unforgettable prank
that will astonish the entire school.
This book is just plain
fun. It's a quick read that will have you laughing out loud more than
once or twice. Of course, as a sworn member of the International Order
of Disorder (I had to join in order to get a signed copy of this book)
I'm obligated to support the literary efforts of my fellow members.
Perhaps this is the most boring book ever, and this review is all one
big prank! To find out for sure, you'll just have to read it for
yourself. Heh, heh, heh.
