The Terrible Two by Mac Barnett & Jory John

This is a new novel that just came out in January.  My mom bought it for me for Valentine's Day.

The Terrible Two is about two boys named Miles and Niles.  Miles is a new kid who moved to Yawnee Valley.  He used to be a happy person, but now he is mad that he had to move and say good-bye to his friends and his apartment near the ocean.  Niles is a school helper, which means he helps out around the school and shows new kids around.  Miles really doesn't like Niles because he keeps asking the same question over and over.  On his first day, Miles learns that he can't be the prankster at his new school and he is good.  Miles wants to earn the spot of the best prankster, so he tries to prank the whole school.  Then he finds out something special about Niles.

I thought this book was a really funny book and I like how they play the different pranks.  I like how one of the characters is the perfect school helper and the other one is the prankster.  I also like how Miles and Niles were enemies at first and then turned into friends.

  1. That's a great review! The way you tell about the plot without giving away how it ends makes me curious now. Maybe I'll go check it out and read it - and I'm not even a kid!
