Riot Brother Rule Number One: Make something exciting happen every day. Whether it’s overthrowing a wicked king (which means you have to find one first), racing to fool your Mom before she gets you on April Fools’ Day, or foiling a diamond heist, Wilbur and Orville Riot are up to the challenge of never being bored. Each book is chock full of ridiculous puns, pithy sayings, and inventive games that you can play at home. The short chapters are a great bedtime read—though if you’re not careful you might stay up all night laughing. The vocabulary is ideal for readers of chapter books, with occasional challenges thrown in. Ethan Long’s lively, cartoonish illustrations bring the action to life, and Mary Amato provides loads of interesting extra material, including songs, sayings, and imaginative games you can play at home. The Riot Brothers have a warm, supportive sibling relationship, and they’ve always got each other’s backs. (It’s in the rules. #21: If your brother is ever in an embarrassing situation, help him out of it.) They’re creative, resilient, and they’re always hilarious. A great read for fans of Dav Pilkey or Jeff Kinney. Our new hardcover editions feature durable, updated paper-over-board covers with cool hidden effects—tilt the book in the light to uncover shiny bugs, underpants, or stink lines—and updated backmatter to keep the laughs going. So keep your eyes open, your mouth shut, and your nostrils on alert! The Riot Brothers are back!
