    Review update: I quite literally have 12 year old boys lining up at the door asking for copies of this book by name, which, coming from the kinds of kids who don't remember to write down homework, really says something about the story's appeal.My book talk for Terrible Two was minimal: I asked kids for examples of pranks, I told them that Miles Murphy would find those pranks junior league, and then I read out loud the passage towards the beginning where Miles Murphy is deciding what kind of person he wants to be at his new school and then a car appears on the steps.*Very few books, in my experience, have what I would consider differentiated humor. Usually either the maturity and reading levels go hand in hand, and those wacky, funny, weird titles that you can totally pass off to a fifth or sixth grader (your Dan Gutmans and Adam Rexes of the world) are a tough sell to a seventh grader who has a 5/6 reading level.But the Terrible Two IS that book where the appeal is much broader than the grade 4-5 reading level. As an adult, I found myself enjoying the snappy and sharp humor writing inside of a fairly canned plot. I see how my more experienced readers respond to this book similarly to the way I did: I have one student who finished this book in a day and then proceeded to re-read it, just to bask in it one more time and to study the authors' crafts.For other students, the idea of a kid who is so studious in the art of pranking is reason enough to read on.Also, kudos to the authors for keeping the grades of these kids ambiguous. They attend a "Letters and Science Academy" instead of a middle school (or an elementary school, or a high school." My seventh graders are tired about reading about other middle schoolers.

    So much fun! I love this way more than Big Nate or Wimpy Kid, but I think it will appeal to the same audience :)

    Miles ist ein fabulöser Streichespieler, doch dann muss er mit seiner Mom in ein Kuhkaff ziehen und all seine harte Arbeit und sein Ruf sind dahin. Als er sich mit dem ruhigen Niles anfreundet wird aber das Streiche-spielen-Feuer neu entfacht und besonders der Direktor der Schule muss sich in acht nehmen! Die Illustrationen im Roman haben mir mit am besten gefallen - diese sind einfach super cool und reichlich vorhanden. Fast auf jeder Seite gibt es passend zum Inhalt Illustrationen, die mir den Spaß beim Lesen versüßt haben. Wenn man ein Junge zwischen 10-15 ist, dann wird man dieses Buch sicher richtig lieben. Es gibt eine Menge Humor, der altersgerecht verteilt ist und immer wieder neue ulkige Situationen.Der Streiche-Kampf war einfach eine total witzige Idee und auch, wenn das alles nicht ganz so originell klingt, so war es das in der Umsetzung alle mal :D Ich bin nur so durchs Buch geflogen, dabei gibt es einiges an Story zu entdecken und lesen. Im Roman kommen nicht besonders viele Figuren vor, aber die tragenden Rollen sind dafür super ausgearbeitet. Die ganze Sache mit den Kühen fand ich urkomisch und grinse noch immer darüber.An einigen Stellen ist der Humor doch etwas übertrieben, aber, für Kinder ist das sicher angemessener, als für einen erwachsenen Leser. Es gibt die typischen Probleme, die man als kleiner Junge hat...Schule ist doof, Freunde finden schwer und am Ende hat man sogar noch etwas dazu gelernt. Der Plot ist ziemlich und klar aufgebaut, aber ich finde, das ist kein Kritikpunkt für ein Kinderbuch. Alles und allem hätte man noch etwas mehr alltägliches einbringen können, als dieses tägliche Albern-sein, aber bei der Länge des Buches ist das auch okay. Für ein spaßiges Abenteuer haben die Autoren wirklich gesorgt :)

    I'm not sure why this book doesn't have a solid 5.0 rating. Or at least a 4.99. This book is EXCELLENT! And I'm not just saying that because I am a huge fan of Mac Barnett and Kevin Cornell.Miles is a new student in the town of Yawnee- a town that is mostly famous for it's cows. He hates that he had to move to this town; in his old town by the ocean, he was known as the Prankster. And on his first day of school, Miles finds out that another student already holds the title of Prankster- someone who parked the principal's car across the entrance of the school so that no one could get in. To make matters worse, Miles is buddied up with Niles, the school helper, who is terribly annoying. Miles keeps trying to pull pranks, but the other Prankster keeps foiling them. Will Miles ever earn back his reputation as a Prankster?This book is HILARIOUS. Although I almost immediately guessed who the Yawnee Prankster was, I didn't even care. I thought it was a brilliant novel. The illustrations were hilarious and added a lot to the novel. The book itself was witty and self-aware without being over-the-top. It was truly hilarious- I actually laughed out loud at several parts, which I Never do with books! I enjoyed both the characters of both Miles and Niles- especially Niles, who took on an almost James Bond persona. I will absolutely recommend this book to students- but not before I buy a second copy for the library- we're gonna need it!

    This was a cute, quick read--great for fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series and the Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life series. There are lots of jokes and pranks and facts about cows (yup...cows). Perfect for struggling and/or reluctant readers.

    Better than Patterson's Middle School series about Rafe, because it doesn't try too hard to be so much. There's a lot of craftsmanship here, but it doesn't show - this reads very light, funny of course, but not overly silly or crazy. The bully, and how he is dealt with, is different than any other I've met. Instead of getting to know the families of the boys, we get to know the principal (kind of; I have to admit he's just a bit implausible). There are no diversions to mean girls, or kindly janitors, or wise grannies, just a tight focus on the adventures of the boys... that is to say, the juicy bits. Well, except for Holly; I see a lot of potential for her to be a larger character in subsequent books, which would be good. The illustrations fit perfectly and there are just the right number of them. I love the the details that they add, like the decrees posted on the walls that say "Principal Barkin sez: ...". Think about it; surely he knows how to spell "says" so why doesn't he? And isn't his name great? And the slogan for the Maraschino Cherries on the front endpaper, (view spoiler)[hard to spell, easy to eat (hide spoiler)].Highly recommended to everyone young at heart, every fan of April Fools' Day, everyone who was once, or has even known, a 12(?) yo boy, every fan of cows. (Besides the character of Barkin being a bit over-the-top, I do wonder about the focus on dairy cows, and the landscaped school grounds, and the mild winter, in Wyoming. That's not what WY looks like when I drive through there. So, until I find out that I'm ignorant, this gets a solid four stars. If I do learn that the team of creators portrayed WY accurately, I will increase my rating to 4.5 stars. :)I will definitely read the next in the series.

    Multi-award winning humorous middle school chapter book that will draw in even reluctant readers. The characters were mischievous makers of chaos, but I enjoyed that they were above average intelligent and creative ones with a code of honor. Also enjoyed the collaborating illustrator's comic panels randomly through out this chapter book that added to the story line.Language: No profanitySensuality content: Squeaky G clean.Source: Amazon Prime Reading Loan.

    A book for all readers, particularly "particular ones" as Jon Scieska would call them. It is full of cow facts that seem to make no sense until the final resolution and what a resolution it is. A school story, a story about a bully who gets what he deserves (though his dad may shape up a bit sooner than seems real), a story about unlikely friends and about pranks..and oh what pranks they are This book should almost come with a cautionary statement, don't try these in your school. Light-hearted but with sweet touches about friends and how two often do a better job than one.

    Closer to a 3.5.I'm always impressed that the trope of pranks and pranksters persists within middle grade books. This is another one of those stories, this time about a new kid at school who was the great pranksters at his old school up against the kid who consistently outsmarts him.This is a fun, fast read with wide middle grade appeal even if it's not too deep and feels understandably derivative. Still a good time, though, and worth a read for this age group.

    This was a quick and entertaining read about two boys who want to be their school's biggest pranksters. Fans of Big Nate and Diary of a Wimpy Kid series would find much to enjoy in this book.

    Out of the many, many books I've read over my lifetime, I can safely say that I've never read one quite like The Terrible Two. Which isn't two surprising considering Mac Barnett is one of the authors. His books are always a bit wacky, in a fun way of course. I'm not particularly big on pranks myself, I think they cause too much trouble, but I did quite enjoy this book. The magnitude and quality of the pranks that Miles and his opponent conjure up are quite impressive. It would be easier to be sympathetic to the target of most of these pranks (Principal Barkin) if he wasn't such a unlikeable character. This is definitely one of those kids versus adults sort of books, which child readers will love and will lead adult readers to roll their eyes at the absurdity of it all (and maybe chuckle a little off to the side). The illustrations add a nice touch, emphasizing the ridiculousness of it all.

    Um livro juvenil muito divertido cheio de partidas geniais! Gostei especialmente da última com as vaquinhas, mas a dos grilos também não ficou atrás. A história é complementada por boas ilustrações que ajudam a criar a ilusão de que estamos a ler e a ver ao mesmo tempo o filme a desenrolar-se na nossa mente. E foi essa a sensação que tive ao longo do livro, de que as personagens pareciam saídas de um filme de animação. Diverti-me muito com Miles & Niles, até com o director Barkin que me fez lembrar o Gru, o maldisposto, e claro, as vacas que não paravam de mugir. Vou, sem dúvida, querer ler o segundo.Recomendo a miúdos e graúdos!

    I wasn't too sure about this book once I started listening to it. The narrator wasn't doing it for me. I really like Barnett's other books so I switched over to reading it myself. It was so much better and the illustrations were great! They reminded me of Blake's illustrations for Roald Dahl's books. I enjoyed how much planning went into the pranks that were pulled in the book. Very clever.

    Някои от вас може би си спомнят едно свежо сериалче, което навремето вървеше по Fox Kids. Заглавието беше „What’s with Andy?” (в преводите варираше между „Анди, разкажи!” и „Ах, този Анди!”), и главният герой, Анди Ларкин, беше професионален калпазанин, клоунът на класа и шегобиец по призвание. С него беше винаги забавно, и сериалчето ми липсва, след като го свалиха от ефира. Именно за него ми напомни и книгата, която представяме днес на „Книжни Криле”. Само че, в нея щуротиите и майтапите са двойна доза, защото и пакостниците са двама. Идват до нас чрез издателство Сиела, а имената им са Майлс и Найлс!

    Hey, This Wasn't Terrible At AllThere are a lot of middle grade books out there that are funny. Some are clever. Some are manic. Some are silly. But very few have the kind of deadpan wit and subtle throwaway lines that you will find in this book. The plot is antic enough. Our hero, Miles, is the new kid at school, plans to be the school's top prankster, and has to dethrone the current anonymous top prankster. Right off the bat I was concerned, because usually prankster books turn on farts, boogers, and gross out humor. I was wrong to be concerned. The actual pranks, which are sort of incidental to the larger story, are actually pretty clever. The prankster angle mostly serves to set up some reason for Miles and student X to compete, then meet, then cooperate. (And once that happens student X becomes a major satisfying character in his/her own right.)This is really more of a new kid/new challenges/new friend comedy of middle grade manners book. Miles is a bright, observant, articulate narrator, and is fine company for the reader. He's not happy about moving to a new dead end burg, but there isn't a lot of whinging. Miles is a can-do, jump right in kind of kid. The tone of the book is consistently upbeat and even though it has some sly and cutting little bits it never seems "off" and never hits a flat note. You can toss in a lot of little zingers in a book like this if you're cheerful about it, and this book never feels sour. It helps that in addition to the main plot we have a few running secondary plots, (Principal Barkin's attempts to find the prankster, Barkin's son's inept bullying), and some very funny one-off set pieces, (the cow-centric nature of the town, Miles' Mom's conversations with Miles, deadpan comments on the action by classmate Holly, and so on).This seems like a book that would appeal to a wide range of kid readers, both because of its premise and because the jokes work differently for different aged readers. A younger reader would get most of the story and older readers would probably pick up on more of the subtle and deadpan business. I guess in the tech world you would call this "scalable". The illustrations help. While they are uncluttered pen and ink drawings they capture a lot of the personality of the characters and energy of the narrative, which would aid younger readers and amuse older readers.You might recognize Mac Barnett as the author of the "Brixton Brothers" series, which is a funny, affectionate reworking of the Hardy Boys style books for a younger crowd. They are terrifically entertaining books, and so it should have been no surprise that this book is, in its own way, equally as accomplished. So, it's funny, engaging and entertaining, with a sweet and cheerful center and a very satisfying resolution. A happy find.Please note that I received a free advance ecopy of this book in exchange for a candid review. Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

    ***Spoiler Alert*** This book is called The Terrible Two. It's a fiction book. It is in the humorous genre. I really liked this book it was a great story.This is character vs character. This story takes place in Yawnee Valley. A kid named Miles moved into a new school in Yawnee Valley. He wanted to become the biggest prankster in school. First he had to find out if the school already had a prankster. Since Miles is the new kid he has to stay with the school helper for the year. This kid is named Niles. Niles seems like such a perfect kid but is not. In fact Niles is the school prankster. As soon as Miles finds out Niles is the school prankster he wants to have a prank war against each other. Niles wants to form a prank duo called The Terrible Two but Miles refuses to join someone. Miles had several pranks that have failed against Niles so he quit and decided to join him. Together they were going to make the biggest prank at Yawnee Valley. They filled the whole school up with cows and school was canceled. Then they framed the principles son for all the pranks that were made. The principle believed the schools "best kid" Miles and got his son in trouble. This story is third person. A huge thing that changed Miles was joining Niles in the prank duo. The title of the book is "The Terrible Two" which is the name of the prank duo. The setting is important because the cows played a role in the last prank. The author's tone is funny. This tone is created by the jokes made by the author. Miles is motivated to beat Niles in the beginning but then realizes to join him.I was surprised that the school's biggest prankster was Miles. Both Miles and Niles are similar because they both love to prank people. I liked the way the author wrote the story out. My favorite part was the ending prank. I liked it because it ended up canceling school and this affected the principle.I rate this book 4/5 stars because overall it was a great book but it was not perfect. I recommend this book to people that like funny books with a twist. This book was really good and I plan on reading the second book. I think everyone should read this book if they have a chance.

    Miles is moving to Yawnee Valley along with his parents, a place with larger spaces, bigger lawns, and lots of cows. He had been known in his last school as the prankster, but upon arrival at his first day of school Miles discovers that there is another prankster already at work. That prankster has put the principal’s car at the top of the stairs to the entrance to the school, blocking it so that no one can enter. So Principal Barkin is forced to have each and every kid at school climb through his car to enter the building. Of course, he could also have had them use the back door… Miles is introduced to Niles, a model student who is assigned as his buddy. Niles is immensely annoying, perfect in class, kissing up to the teacher. But NIles is also the prankster who pulled off the car stunt. As the two become rivals, a pranking war begins, one that involves insects, pie, forgeries, and lots of cake. Who will reign supreme at the school and will Principal Barkin survive it?This book, which I assume is the beginning of a new series, will be adored by kids. It has exactly the right tone and sense of humor. The two rival boys are a delightful contrast to one another, yet equally likeable and one isn’t quite sure who to root for so you end up rooting for the prank to be great. And what pranks they are. Principals may not enjoy the humor here, but it is much more about this one school and a principal who loses his cool regularly than about any real prank being pulled in a real school setting. The pranks are elaborate enough that no one is going to be taking real cues from this book.Cornell’s illustrations add to the humor. I particularly enjoy the cows, the cow facts done as a list, and the rubber chickens. The book has a wonderful wildness to it, an edginess of a prank about to go wrong, that is also reflected in the zany art. Reluctant readers will enjoy the breaking up of the text into manageable chunks. Get this into the hands of fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and those who are outgrowing Captain Underpants. Appropriate for ages 7-10.

    Miles is not thrilled about moving to Yawnee Valley; it's so boring there that the most interesting thing to talk about appears to be COWS. Miles was a great prankster at his old school and has a notebook of his pranks, so he doesn't quite know what to think when the first day of school is marked by Principal Barkin's hatchback being placed at the top of the school's stairs, blocking the entry way! Barkin immediately accuses Miles, who is annoyed that he has to be in the company of Niles, the "school helper" who dogs his every step. Miles plans a huge prank-- he invites everyone to a birthday party of a cool kid who goes to another school... and doesn't exist. Sure enough, everyone talks about it, brings food and presents, and claims to have talked to Cody Burr-Tyler. Just when Miles is about to announce the prank and run off with the presents, Cody appears on stage and drives off with the presents in a limousine! The other prankster turns out to be none other than Niles, who claims that Miles is not a good prankster and offers to work with him. Miles refuses, and instead tries to outprank Niles, which fails miserably. Eventually, the two decide to work together against a common foe: Principal Barkin and his bullying son, who is running unopposed for class president.Strengths: Anything with pictures, and blurbed by Dav Pilkey and Jeff Kinney, is bound to be successful with middle grade readers, and this had enough humor to recommend it. Niles is an appealingly devious character who understands the necessity of stealth when pranking, and Miles is haplessly clueless but well meaning. The names are a bit goofy but not over the top, as are the situations. A must purchase title for middle school libraries. Weaknesses: I don't understand why school principals are so often portrayed as complete and utter buffoons, ALWAYS overweight and ineffectual, and often mean spirited. Why is it okay to make fun of an entire profession like this? Seems wrong. Also, destroying a hatchback-- never right.

    Spicuiri din recenzia finala care se gaseste pe blogul meu..........................................Miles este nefericit. Pentru că a fost nevoit să se mute în Valea Căscatului (Yawnee Valley) și pentru că s-a despărțit de prietenii săi cei mai buni. Pentru că-n Valea Ionii nu sunt decât vaci. Pentru că e înscris la o nouă școală unde nu știe pe nimeni și unde trebuie să-și refacă numele de cel mai mare farsor al școlii. Doar că la Academia de Științe Exacte și Socio-Umane din Valea Ionii este deja un farsor. Și este mult mai spectaculos decât Miles. Cum? Păi, dacă a reușit ca-n prima zi de școală să mute mașina directorului în fața intrării din școală astfel încât toți elevii au fost nevoiți să treacă prin mașină ca să nu se închidă școala, atunci nu e un farsor cel puțin deosebit? Asta, în mintea lui Miles înseamnă clar război. Dacă reușește, mai întâi, să scape de zgâmboiul de Niles, animalul de companie al profesorilor, care se ține de el mai dihai ca râia.La ora la care scriu articolul îmi vine să vă spun cât mai în detaliu tot ce m-a entuziasmat și mi-a plăcut la Miles, Niles, Directorul Latră, Latră junior, la vaci, la Yawnee Valley, la tot ceea ce înseamnă Cei doi teribili de fapt. Pentru că mi-a plăcut enorm ideea, felul în care este scrisă, ilustrată, ce să mai, absolut tot! Am stat o noapte în bucătărie și am râs și mi-am dat cu presupusul până la deznodământ cu privire la rivalul din umbră al lui Miles, cine va câștiga războiul farsorilor, care va fi următoarea farsă spectaculoasă și cum va dejuca adversarul planul celui ce-ncearcă să-l prindă-n plasă!.......................................

    This is the first book in The Terrible Two series by Mac Barnett. The story is short and humorous and I loved the narration by Adam Verner - his character voices are hilarious and over-the-top, but in a wonderful way. (I love his voice for Stuart).The concept of trying to carve out an identity, especially after having to move and start a new school is something that many children will identify with. When Miles and his family move to Yawnee, Wyoming "Come Look at Our Cows," he decides that he is going to be the biggest prankster in the Science and Letters Academy. Unfortunately, Miles discovers that he has found his match in that department.I love the clever pranks and the descriptions of how much planning went into them. Some of them were quite mean, but on the whole, they did no real harm. I also love that Holly, more than anyone else in the story, is no fool. She does not put up with much of the nonsense that others do. I hope to see more of her in the next stories. December 2017 update: I forgot that I'd already read the book, so I started to listen to the audiobook again and realized right away that I'd already listened to it. Still, I remembered how funny it was, so I went ahead and listened to it again. So funny!

    Yawnee Valley is a small town with not much going for it, except for cows. Miles Murphy is not very happy when his family moves there. He was quite comfortable with his old home, school, and friends. Most importantly he was the uncontested best prankster at his old school. Now he has to start all over. It gets worse when he gets to his new school only to find they already have a prankster, and he is quite good. In order to take the lead spot, Miles must engage in an all out prank war!I am not generally a fan of this genre, but Mac Barnett is one of my favorites when it comes to picture books so I thought I would give it a try! I was pleasantly surprised. While it has everything kids, especially boys, are looking for at this age, it also carries a bit of cleverness. Sure the two young boys are a bit obnoxious, but they actually use their brains to solve their problems! The illustrations are simple, yet they add to the imagination and hilarity of the story. On top of that, there is a positive message lurking in the background. Finally, if you want to learn wacky facts about our favorite mooing animal, this is the book for you! Would be great for book talking to elementary aged kids.

    Confidence. Mischief. Danger. Those are three things you do NOT want to see in your rival's smile. All Miles Murphy lives and breathes are pranks. Pranking is all he knows. It's what he's a master at. When he moves to the boring town of Yawnee Valley, famous for cows-yes, COWS, he is determined to do what he does best-prank. However, there is already a master pranker in Yawnee. Someone, dare I say it, BETTER than Miles! Miles must figure out who this pranker is and how to beat him at his game, before Miles' pranking days are over. This will not be an easy feat, but it is one Miles is eager to accomplish in order to be the king of all pranks, yet again.You can see Jory John and Mac Barnett in the characters they've written here: hillarious, intelligent and ridiculously ridiculous. Loved it!

    This book was seriously funny and I highly recommend the audiobook. Miles is the best prankster at his school. It's what he's known for. So when his family moves from their seaside town to the town of Yawnee (about as exciting as it sounds), Miles knows he's going to have to pull some awesome pranks so that the kids at this new school know exactly who they're dealing with. But when Miles gets to school on the first day and sees that someone has parked the principal's car on top of the steps, right in front of the school doors, he knows that there's already a prankster at this school. Is there room for another? This book is laugh-out-loud funny and it's made even funnier with cartoony fully voiced narration by Adam Verner. From the determined principal to the wacky kid Sherman who always has an obvious observation, Verner's voices are spot on and add to the hilarity.
