The Terrible Two (Mac Barnett and Jory John)

I loved this book. It is seriously hilarious. How does Mac Barnett hit the nail exactly in the head every time?! This guy gets kid humor. Not many books make me laugh out loud. I usually chuckle. This one made me gafaw out loud. Loved it!

I thought if so many kids I knew when I was reading this book. It reminded me of my prankstering cousin and I. She was the nerdy one with the school helper sash. Not because she was a nerd.....but she was the queen of pranks. I just wanted to be :)

I also related to the lack of respect for cows. I remember when our dumb cows used to get out...always seemed to happen when our parents weren't home. Cows are dumb. The cow commentaries in this book are hilarious.

Goodreads summary:

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.
