Reviews The Terrible Two Go Wild (The Terrible Two, #3)

  • Eileen
    The best by far. (But not very far because this whole series is awesome.) Everything about this book is wonderful and good.I finished reading it, and I wanted to start reading it again immediately. The worst part about this book is that there isn't more to it. They need to write about eleven more books for this series before I'll be satisfied, and even then, no guarantees. Since this book takes place over summer vacation, it can be read out of or...
  • Lani
    My 10 year old son and I really enjoy this series. We love the pranks Miles and Niles play on Principal Barkin and now Josh Barkin! We hope there are more to come.

    In the newest book, Niles and Miles have set up their secret summer headquarters in a cave within the Yawnee Valley Regional Park and Outdoor Recreational Area. Nearby, Josh Barkin, principal Barkin's son is a camp counselor at the Yawnee Valley Yelling and Push-Ups Camp. Josh runs Papa Company, where he whips his cadets, twins Splinters and Mudflap into shape. The pranks in the series are meant to be over the top, usually with very little conseq...

    This book series is so much fun, especially as a quick listen in the car.
  • Laura
    These books are so funny and clever but they are also surprisingly emotionally affecting.
  • Theresa Grissom
    The students at school enjoy this hilarious series. Can't wait to introduce this 3rd installment!

    Meine MeinungVorab möchte ich zuerst sagen, ich kannte die ersten beiden Teile der Reihe nicht. Dies ist aber überhaupt kein Problem, auch wenn es die eine oder andere Anspielung zu den vorherigen Bänden gab. Die beiden Jung Miles und Niles sind sehr unterschiedlich und trotzdem sind sie beste Freunde. Sie erleben in diesem Buch ein Sommerferien-Abenteuer, das sich jedes Kind einfach nur wünschen kann. Die beiden sind mir direkt ans Herz gewa...
  • Eva-Maria Obermann
    Nach zwei Schuljahren endlich einmal Sommerferien. Das haben Miles und Niles sich auch redlich verdient. Dass nicht nur ihr Erzfeind Josh Barkin, sondern auch sein Vater wieder eine wichtige Rolle spielt, erzeugt einen roten Faden durch die verschiedenen Bände. Gripps gegen Muckis, Freundschaft gegen Mobbing, sogar romantisch wird es diesmal. Miles und Niles entwickeln sich also weiter, was ich sehr toll finde. Viele Kinderbücher bleiben mit de...
  • Jonathan
    I loved this one just as much as the other two, which is a lot! There are so many different types of humor mixed in, from slapstick, puns, riddles, and sarcasm, it's bound to make everyone chuckle at some point (if not completely laugh out loud). Another big aspect of all of the books in this series are the lessons they teach and "Go Wild" is not lacking in that field. Although it is approached in a humorous way, the issue of bullying is addresse...
  • Mikey Golczynski
    It's my favorite middle grade book series. I don't really have the words to describe how it's written, but it just speaks to me. I love how the dynamic between Barkin and the boys has shifted. It has helped from turning this into a one note joke. Barkin's development in general is great. He has issues with his son, and vice versa. We learn more about the Terrible Two, we get a better sense of how intense Niles can be as he grows up. We learn more...
  • Laura
    Since the titular Two are in full summer vacation mode, their target has shifted from their usual inept blustering principal to his blowhard scowling son. They even form a truce of sorts with the woods-wandering principal, recognizing his loneliness and mellowed nature and pranking him in an inclusive way that lets him in on the joke. But the prank plans directed at the son just felt more mean-spirited and full of potential danger. It's supposed ...
  • Pam
    The writing remains clever but the humor takes a darker turn between the peers in this volume. Summertime changes the dynamics for all of the relationships as the Two take on Josh Barkin again and we see more cruelty from both the "bully" and the pranksters. An interesting side story is the connection forming between Principal Barkin and Niles and Miles during off school time.Middle readers will enjoy the humor in this series. I do look forward t...
  • Natalia
    This was a fun short read. I should say that I liked previous 2 books better with the 1st one being my favorite. I feel there is not enough of principal Barkin there and not that many characters other than the main characters of the story. However the pranks were delightful and the prose was pleasure to read. I thought is was good enough, although I expected more after such a long wait.
  • Anna
    After the previous books, this one felt like a letdown when most of the attention went to a side character. The series seems to work better in a school setting although the further development of Principal Barkin and the pranking duo will be interesting to see now that his strict edge had worn down. Also the side romance was unexpected but those characters work well.
  • Earl
    The dynamic duo is back and defending the reputation of pranksters against a camp bully. I love how the series can be first and foremost funny and then poignant. It's not just a summer of jokes- although there are lots of laughs to be had- but a time of growing up, a coming of age between two friends. While I enjoy the illustrations, I would love it if the books had less of them if it means more- and faster- stories!
  • Steph
    I LOVE THE TERRIBLE TWO! What crafty work Jory John an Mac Barnett have done. Such a unique duo (Both Jory/Mac AND Miles/Niles!) Thrilled to see that this series continues to be creative, quirky, and smart!
  • Emily Ross
    Oh my goodness, how does this series just keep getting better???!!! I love the terrible two and Principal Barkin, the summer was an excellent setting. I hope we get to see more of them back at school soon!
  • Kevin W
    While Principal Barkin continues to become more lovable and hilarious (and there are plenty of other funny moments throughout), the book as a whole felt a bit lacking in overall story. Looking forward to the next installment, as the characters are still a lot of fun to spend time with.
  • JoEllen
    So happy to see that this series continues their pranks and adventures through a summer setting. Fans will love. More laughs and smiles for these friends. Bonus play on words with Josh's obsession with acronyms. Lol
  • Mighty
    Again, Mac Barnett does a great job. Although the main characters did not develop much in this book, Principal Barkin's character was developed more. These books are great. I won't say any more to avoid spoilers.
  • Mary Thomas
    Another good one. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of all the acronyms and made-up words, but it was very humorous. It took me longer to read than the other two, but I think that's because I had a hard copy instead of the Kindle (which I can more easily access while holding a baby!).
  • Ms.McDermott
    My son and I love these clever books. The narrator in this series is a real treat, the pranks are hilarious, and it's a great series for boys who need to read something other than Wimpy Kid.
  • Sasha K
    This seemed more tame and little less plot driven for me than the first two. I liked the gold tree and the sod jokes though. I hope they team up for another series.
  • Gail
    Read this with my seven year old. He really likes this series and I do too. Such a great friendship that Miles and Niles have.
  • Ayomi
    The ending was unpredictable in a good way.
  • Alyssa
    A little slow starting and not quite as good as the first two, but still fun!
  • Reving
  • Ishita Chandrawat
    This book was a bit hard to read but it was silly also I liked the first book the best
  • Stacey
    3.5 stars. The plot is okay, but the jokes are fantastic and the writing is clever.
