Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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.

Sequel to: The terrible two.

"Friends and pranking partners Miles and Niles face a tough challenge when their favorite goat and nemesis, Principal Barkin, is replaced by his stern, no-nonsense father, Former Principal Barkin, who turns the school into boot camp"-- Provided by publisher.

Horn Book Review

Pranking remains a fine art in this sequel to The Terrible Two (rev. 3/15), which opens with Miles and Niles targeting Principal Barkin and his obnoxious son, Josh, in practical jokes of the highest quality. Unfortunately, their success brings a new challenge in the form of Principal Barkins father, former Principal Barkin, who, disgusted by his sons inability to handle the pranking that mars his legacy, takes the school back under his own control. The Terrible Two seem to have met their match in this wily, domineering leader who defuses most of their hijinks and just ignores the others, no matter how creative, complicated, or well executed. Ultimately, the Terrible Two must enlist some help to get under the skin of senior Principal Barkin, and they know exactly whom to ask. Exaggerated cartoon illustrations throughout punctuate the plot and add to the comedy. Full of absorbing strategy and even a little suspense, this humorous sequel will keep readers entertained while offering insight into the nature of successful pranking and its reliance on audience reaction. julie roach (c) Copyright 2016.
