Snarf Attack, Underfoodle, and the Secret of Life: The Riot Brothers Tell Allby Ethan Long
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.

This book iz da best book ive eva read it iz so funny i really reccomend it 2 everyone
My favorite character is Olive because he`s just like me. I liked the time my character made Snarf Attack.
This book was the best book I ever read because it had all the really good details about things. Plus, it was really funny about all the inventions and pranks the characters did. For example, they launched a kid with a catapolt. You should read this book if you have a little brother or sister because it has good games as a bonus in the back of the book. You will have to read this book to find out the rules of snarf attack which is a really cool game. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.
These two brothers are too much! We picked this up every night to see what they would do next until we finished it together. It was worth a ***** rating according to my 8 year old son!
Funny and can,t wait to read the next book
