Overview
New York Times Bestseller

"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 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.

--Dave Eggers

"This book is terrible Terribly funny, terribly full of pranks, and terribly wonderful."

"The Terrible Two are my kind of kids. And what's more, they're kids' kind of kids."

The perfect prank

Miles Murphy is not happy about starting at a new school in the snoringly boring town of Yawnee Valley. The only thing that might make this OK is becoming the greatest prankster the school has ever seen. Miles was proud of his reputation as “King Prankster” at his old school, even if it meant that some of his friends didn’t like hanging out with him anymore.

On the first day of school, however, Miles discovers that there is already a pretty awesome prankster among the students: Niles Sparks, apparent goody two-shoes. Niles would like to team up with Miles, but Miles isn’t having it. It takes some pranks gone wrong to convince Miles that together—as the Terrible Two—he and Niles could be legendary.

This story by veteran children’s author Mac Barnett and his longtime friend Jory John is absolutely hilarious. The illustrations by Kevin Cornell add just the right flavor to the comic writing. With genius pranks, a purple-faced principal and lots of cows, there’s something here for everyone.
