From New York Times bestselling authors Mac Barnett and Jory John comes The Terrible Two, the first book in a deviously funny series about fitting in, making your mark, and finding a friend where you least expect one.
“A double helping of fun and mischief.” —Jeff Kinney, author, Diary of a Wimpy Kid
“This book is really funny and exciting.” —TheGuardian
Welcome to Yawnee Valley, the land of cows.
“Some facts about Yawnee Valley: If you placed all of Yawnee Valley’s cows in a stack, they would extend to the moon and back. (But this is probably not a good idea since cows are afraid of heights and cannot breathe in space without helmets.)”
Miles Murphy is known for one thing and one thing only: pranking. He’s the best prankster his school has ever seen. So when he’s forced to move to boring, cow-filled Yawnee Valley, he assumes he’ll be the best prankster at his new school, too.
There’s one problem. The school already has a prankster—and he’s good. Really good. Let the prank war begin!
Young readers won’t want to put this book down. It’s just a lot of fun. Deceptively simple to read but with a lovely flow, the concepts are sometimes deep, including the subject of bullying. But Terrible Two never reverts to the obvious or to potty humor, and the vocabulary is spot-on for the age group.
