Reviews-

  • DOGO Books bibliophile - After Miles and Niles getting together to finalize their perfect prank... it started... one by one... pranking the principal..... And after the last straw... they did it... they spelled out a message with flowers which led on to firing Principal Barkin by his older father... (the not so nice principal... he honestly is the terrible one XD) SO Bertrand Barkin has absolutely no weaknesses... you know "what kills you makes you stronger" is honestly so true... because every time the pranksters keep on pranking the school it always backfires and becomes stronger... After a couple more weeks later everybody turned into his minions.. no joke... seriously... no pranks or jokes were allowed... After this... Miles and Niles came up with this terrible (but so-brilliant plan) which included.... DUN DUN DUNN... the former Principal Barkin... honestly that caught me off guard... but the story perfectly weaved together... I absolutely loved this book... it was hilarious yet with that perfect touch of seriousness.. If you are an aspiring prankster... I urge you to read this book... in fact I'll tell you the Prankster Oath... which states, " On my honor I will do my best. To be good at being bad. To disrupt, but not destroy; To embarrass the dour and amuse the merry... For I am a prankster. So be it..." It's a pretty good oath... Shhh don't tel anyone but I recited it as well... So if you want a laugh read this amusing book... because it brought a smile to my face... and one more word of advice... a clothespin ALWAYS work way better than a gas mask... And prepare to laugh... And for those who did not read the first book.. I'll post my review for the first book.. to give a "little insight..." This book brought my level of happiness maxed out!!!! This book was hilarious all the way to the end, I don't remember a time not smiling... it was that funny...this book had cool facts about cows I did not know about like did you know that cows produce more milk with classical milk! Yeah, we don't really need to know about it, but it's a random fact that I considered to remember as I am currently typing...I really liked how the author weaved in comics, cows, and pranks in the story... WAIT the pranks are awesome... if you read this book, this is one reason why to be a prankster...Also the pictures were good sketches that helped make the story funnier and you could really notice the tiny details in this story by the cute sketches... So it starts with Miles Murphy who is very gloomy because he is moving and is on his way to Yawnee Valley... Miles had this huge rep in his old school being the grand master of pranking... but now since Miles is moving he needs to step up his game because there is a very good prankster at his school... Surprises, twists and turns... the prankster turns out to be...(Guess who??? Well read and find out) well they had a prank war, and finally compromised to make the best prank ever in history... and guess which day...(Well I hoped you guessed it right)and you guessed it right April Fools Day!!!! With twists and turns, a crazy principal, funky cows, smart friends, the "best" frenemy this book had exceeded it's title to be the one of the most funniest book ever :-)!! Will the huge prank work??? Will Miles and (Niles) able to work it out together??? Will they ever meet Cody Burr-Tyler (I'm joking with that, but still you would know if you read it... so READ it)??? Fans of Diary of the Wimpy Kid series, The Brilliant World of Tom Gates, and funny and adventurous books, this book, The Terrible Two, will be a perfect and hilarious read!!

    When pranking perfection meets the seemingly unprankable foe, who gets the last laugh? Terrible Two Niles and Miles have been merrily pranking their favorite targets, Principal Barkin and his dim, loathsome son Josh, at school and in town all autumn long. Fed up with the plague of pranks, former Principal Barkin (father of the current one) stages a coup d'etat at a school board meeting and takes back his old job. This new-old Principal Barkin is draconian in his control of the school. He hangs a sign counting the days since the last prank]which, since he avows there is no prank if no one reacts (and he never reacts), means there have been no pranks. Miles and Niles despair as one after another of their complex, devious plots are ignored. School becomes unbearable until they seek help from a most unlikely source. Can three succeed where two have failed? John and Barnett's sophomore effort is as much fun as series opener The Terrible Two (2015). The boys' history as rivals and their home lives barely receive mention here, so the first volume is a must-read]no hardship. Cornell's line drawings add to the goofy, deadpan experience. This revenger's comedy, dotted with references to classic plays and philosophical concepts, will be a joy for pranksters and seekers of a good-hearted laugh. (Fiction. 8-11)

    Gr 4-6-It's a new school year, and Miles and Niles, the Terrible Two, are ready to prank. The year has hardly begun when the unthinkable happens. The Terrible Two have done their job too well, and their principal, Mr. Barkin, is put on involuntary leave because of his inability to control the incessant rash of pranks in his school, humiliatingly replaced by his father. Miles and Niles gear up to start pranking the new Principal Barkin, but he is a strong opponent, maintaining that a prank is only a prank if it is acknowledged as such. No matter how ingenious the Terrible Two's pranks are, Barkin will not admit anything is wrong. Depressed and a feeling a little guilty, Miles and Niles team up with the last person they ever thought they'd pull off a prank with: former principal Barkin, the one person who knows his father's only weakness. This is a strong and much anticipated follow up to the original. The evolution of the characters and their relationships is particularly enjoyable. Miles and Niles have grown as friends and as people. It's fun to watch them grapple with the repercussions of their actions but ultimately decide to continue pranking. Viewing former principal Barkin from a new perspective, as he tries to find meaning in his life after losing his job, will make readers rethink their original views of him. The new Mr. Barkin is a wonderful, villainous addition to the cast of characters at Yawnee Valley School. Fast-paced and laugh-aloud funny, the book will appeal to a wide range of readers. Frequent, humorous graphics will attract fans of visual storytelling and also make the book more accessible to reluctant readers. Quirky writing and colorful dialogue make the book an excellent read-aloud. VERDICT A welcome addition for fans of the first book, though familiarity with the original isn't necessary to enjoy this hilarious sequel.-Juliet Morefield, Multnomah County Library, OR
