A double helping of fun and mischief! Jeff kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series Hilarious. Dav Pilkey, author of the Captain Underpants series Miles Murphy is not happy to be moving to Yawnee Valley, a sleepy town thats famous for one thing and one thing only: cows. In his old school, everyone knew him as the towns 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. Its 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. The pranks, the brotherhood, the art, the heart! Whats not to love about the Terrible Two? Sara Pennypacker, author of the Clementine series You dont have to be a cow, like cows, or even know a cow to love the Terrible Two. Dave Eggers This book is terrible! Terribly funny, terribly full of pranks, and terribly wonderful. Jon Scieszka, author of The Stinky Cheese Man and the Frank Einstein series The Terrible Two are my kind of kids. And whats more, theyre kids kind of kids. Annie Barrows, author of the Ivy & Bean series

It always pays when you take time to appreciate the details. Note the quiet weirdness of Kevin Cornell‘s drawings. Miles has some pretty amazing t-shirts... like this one, which inexplicably features a spork.🤷‍♀️😆

cobwebmoth I would totally wear a shirt with a spork on it. 12mo

This book may end, as it begins, with the sound of a cow mooing. But in my head, it ended with resounding applause. Jory John, Mac Barnett, & Kevin Cornell are uproariously funny. I finished this up in a shared office space on a snow day, &, despite some funny looks, I couldn‘t hold in my laughter. It‘s nominated for the Massachusetts Children‘s Book Award & while there are weightier titles on the ballot, I must admit: I hope this one wins.🤞🏻

It‘s funny, silly, and totally fun to read!
It‘s about Miles who moved to a new town and new school where someone parked the principal‘s car on the steps. He meets Niles. They don‘t like each other. Then Miles declares a prank war. But Miles realizes he can‘t beat Niles in the prank war. So they become the Terrible Two. I can‘t wait to read the next one and hope it‘s even more funny. Funnier. - F, aged 7

I read this to my 7 and 9 yr old daughters. I wanted something light-hearted and funny after reading the very serious The War That Saved My Life. This was absolutely perfect! It was so funny and I loved the writing. It was a lot of fun to read out loud. We are rolling right into the second one. So glad it's a trilogy.

When your two year old gets a hold of your Litsy Goes Postal book with a brown marker 😩😭He's never done anything like this before, and of course he had to do it with a book that isn't mine! I left the room for ONE minute! Would you like me to replace this book club members? @DGRachel #litsygoespostal, #24HourReadingRoom, and #24HRR

DGRachel Marginalia! I love marginalia! 😂😂😂😂 It looks like the book is still completely legible and I think it just adds a little more fun to the tale. Not only are the characters Disaster Magnets, apparently so is that copy of the book. 😂😂 3y
Alfoster Couldn't you just call him an "author in training" whose markings will be worth a fortune later?? (Easy for me to say since I'm not part of your group though)??? 3y
reneelyons @DGRachel @Alfoster Hahaha!!!! You're so right, Rachel 😂I feel so terrible about it! His big brother must have left the marker laying around...uuuugh. 3y

Amandajoy As long as the words aren't obscured, go ahead & send it. It does add something to the overall tale. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before I spill coffee all over someone's book! 3y
reneelyons @DGRachel I sent a little something your way - let me know when you get it! 3y
Desha I wouldn't worry about it...it gives the book "character" ?☺️?❤️? 3y
reneelyons Thanks @Desha!! 3y
DGRachel @reneelyons I just checked my email. Thank you so much. That was very sweet and thoughtful of you. ❤ 3y
Foxyfictionista Awwwww, he wanted to participate! I'm sure we'll all have a little chuckle when the book gets to us. ☺️ 3y

Cannot pick between these two books about #DisastrousKids for the #OctPhotoChallenge My kids and I recommend them both. We had a great time of laughter and life lessons as we read them at bedtime.

This is a quirky fun tale about two rival pranksters who team up in small town, USA. Mac Barnett + Jory John = twisted humor. #iowachildrenschoicenominee
