The Terrible Two Get Worse
by Mac Barnett and Jory John
On their own, pranksters Miles and Niles were pretty devious. Now that they’ve formed a pranking duo, they’re terrible! But their powers will be tested when their favorite nemesis, Principal Barkin, is replaced by his stern and cunning father, Former Principal Barkin. Now Miles and Niles will do just about anything to get their old antagonist back—including pranking alongside him.
Authors and friends Mac Barnett and Jory John “are in perfect comic harmony” (Publishers Weekly) in this series that celebrates inventiveness, friendship, and the power of teamwork—for good, or for terrible.
Praise for The Terrible Two Get Worse
"John and Barnett's sophomore effort is as much fun as series opener The Terrible Two...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.”
“Hilarious....Fast-paced and laugh-aloud funny, the book will appeal to a wide range of readers.... Quirky writing and colorful dialogue make the book an excellent read-aloud.”
—School Library Journal
