Move over, Captain Underpants, a couple of new pranksters are in town. Narrated by fifth-grader Wilbur and featuring his third-grade brother, Orville, this hilarious story follows the antics of two boys with overactive imaginations and a comfortable sibling relationship. The action is divided into three "books," with six chapters each. In the first, the brothers are determined to catch a crook. They make a windfall by giving lessons in being annoying to their classmates, are reprimanded by the principal (who is also their mother), and still manage to foil a bank robber on the way home from school. Next, while searching for treasure, they find a mysterious box in the closet. After they finally open it, they discover that the contents, although not worth money, are still valuable. The final installment has the duo building a catapult designed to overthrow a king and using it instead to defeat a bully.

Gr. 2-4. Fans of silly but entertaining gross-out stories, such as the Captain Underpants books, will appreciate this collection of three tales featuring the Riot brothers, Orville and Wilbur, who manage to make even their daily chores a fun adventure. The games they create have names like Snarf Attack, Underfoodle, the Naked Mole-Rat Game, and the Frying Pan Game. The objective of Snarf Attack is to make an opponent laugh so hard at dinner that milk comes out of his or her nose. The objective of Underfoodle is to get as many pairs of underwear as possible on your head in thirty seconds. The Riot brothers also impart their homegrown juvenile wisdom to readers with sayings like "All you need is a butt to put underpants on your butt, but it takes a brain to put underpants on your head." Young readers will appreciate the Riot brothers' attempts to make something exciting happen every day. Long's playful cartoon illustrations extend the fun. Ed Sullivan
