Get ready for an epic prank war in this middle-grade classic! Miles Murphy is known for being the town's best prankster, but that all changes when he moves to Yawnee Valley - a sleepy town that already has a great prankster. If Miles wants to reclaim his title, he'll have to up his game in a hilarious battle of trickery. This bestselling book, written by Mac Barnett and Jory John, has all the fun and humor of classic middle-grade literature while feeling fresh and new.
