But the real problem is the pranks! Miles' pranks keep getting foiled and on top of that-- HE is getting OUT-PRANKED!! It's more than he can handle. He almost cracks under the pressure. BUT, an unlikely solution presents itself and-- and, well it turns out to be pretty fantastic for him!
Listen, this book is great! It's a quick read and it's got funny art (by Kevin Cornell) breaking up the text (which enhances the story and also makes the book less intimidating to reluctant readers). I'd say it's about right for the 3rd to 5th grade crowd, boys and girls alike.
It's the classic grade school novel (think Judy Blume or Andrew Clements) but with all these fun twists and cow facts-- YES, I said cow facts! Mac Barnett and Jory John! They've created this hilarious story with completely outrageous pranks, yet it's totally relatable and even has a underlining theme of friendship and teamwork. Awesome job gentlemen!
Happy reading, and happy pranking!
