The Terrible Two's Last Laugh: 05/24/20
The Terrible Two's Last Laugh by Mac Barnett, Jory John, and Kevin Cornell (illustrator) is the conclusion to the Terrible Two series. It's the last year at Pawnee Academy for Miles and Niles. Principle Barkin wants to have one last prank before the year ends.
Barkin wants to spend this last year learning how to improve his pranking. He's good at the small ones but he tends to give the larger ones away before the prank is complete.
To make sure this is well and truly the last laugh, the book ends with a career change for Principal Barkin and a move for Miles and his family. It's a fitting end especially for readers who will be moving onto new schools, and might have friends moving to different districts.
With Miles and Niles and Principal Barkin all friends now, there isn't as much room for big gags. This is a quiet, thoughtful end to a comedic series.
