Everyone's favorite pranksters are at it again School's out, and Miles and Niles are running wild in the woods outside town: climbing trees, exploring caves, and, yes, pranking. But these leafy, lazy days of mischief darken when bully Josh Barkin and his cadets from a nearby kids' boot camp discover the merrymakers--and vow to destroy them. Are our heroes' sharp minds any match for these hooligans' hard fists? The third installment of the witty, on-target illustrated series is another "fast paced, laugh-out-loud novel" (School Library Journal on The Terrible Two) that proves once again that, in the hands of the powerless, pranks can be tools of justice--plus, they're funny.
