The Terrible Two by Mac Barnett and Jory John just came out in January and I heard how funny it was so I couldn't wait to read it this weekend. It is a very funny book and will be a hit in my 5th grade classroom - I already have a list of students who are waiting to read it! Miles Murphy, a prankster, moves to a new town and discovers his new school already has a prankster! As he begins to pull pranks of his own, he is shocked (and you will be too!) to discover who the other prankster is and then the war begins between the terrible two. This is a perfect book to put in the hands of reluctant readers too because it will keep them engaged and make them laugh! It looks like this is the first book in the series so I can't wait for the next one. :)
Happy Reading! :)
