Miles Murphy had it made. He lived in a great town near the ocean, he had two best friends, and, most importantly, he had a reputation for being his town's best prankster. All of which explains why he's not happy to be moving to Yawnee Valley, a sleepy town that's famous for one thing and one thing only: cows. Worse than that, Miles quickly discovers that Yawnee Valley already has a prankster, and a great one. If Miles is going to take the title from this mystery kid, he is going to have to raise his game.

I heard Cody Burr-Tyler absolutely LOVED this book. Also, could the cover be any more spoilery? Still pretty entertaining to read.

I read this aloud to my 6-year-old. I would probably recommend for age 8 and up, but we frankly roared with laughter by the end of the book. What a great read!

Miles Murphy was the prankster king at his old school, then he had to move to boring, old Yawnee Valley, famous for its abundant cow population. Miles is not happy. He will have to establish his pranking cred all over again. Enter Niles Sparks, do-gooder extraordinaire.

"With a name like Yawnee Valley, it's clear that Miles Murphy's new hometown needs some excitement. And Miles, the "King Prankster" of his old school, is ready to provide it. Yet he finds himself out-pranked at every turn by someone he never would have suspected. When his rival offers to join forces, Miles refuses, but as their prank war heats up, Miles has to admit that they could pull some truly epic tricks if they worked together. First in a series, this comically absurd, cartoon-illustrated book about unapologetic practical jokers is sure to amuse." Kids' Books February 2015 newsletter

The Prankster's Oath

On my honor I will do my best:
To be good at being bad;
To disrupt, but not destroy;
To embarrass the dour and amuse the merry;
To devote my mind to japes, capers, shenanigans, and monkey business;
To prove the world looks better turned upside down;

For I am a prankster.

So be it.
