Miles Murphy is known for one thing and one thing only: pranking.
He’s the best prankster his school has ever seen. So when he’s forced to move to boring Yawnee Valley (also known for one thing and one thing only: cows), he assumes he’ll be the best prankster at his new school too. There’s one problem. The school already has a prankster—and he’s good. Really good.
From bestselling authors Mac Barnett (Extra Yarn, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole) and Jory John (Penguin Problems, The Bad Seed) comes this deviously funny new series about fitting in, making your mark, and finding a friend where you least expect one. Oh, and cows.
School's out and pranksters Miles and Niles have retreated to a perfect hideout in the woods, complete with snacks, games, books, sleeping bags, stream-chilled lemonade . . . and a stolen flag of nearby Yawnee Valley Yelling and Push-Ups Camp.

It's war, but one that pits nimble minds against hard fists; and as pranksters know, the real art of war is winning without landing a single blow.
