Three stories star Wilbur and Orville, the Riot brothers, as they capture a thief, find a hidden treasure, and overthrow the Snowball King during a snow day.

Holiday House
Riot Brother Rule Number One: Make something exciting happen every day.
 
It's no easy task, but Wilbur and Orville Riot are up to the challenge. Whether it's catching a bank robber, finding hidden treasure while cleaning the house, or overthrowing a wicked king, the Riot brothers are clever, resourceful, and just plain funny.  They sing songs, make up games, and always come out on top in the end... in spite of a few bumps along the way.
 
The inventive, energetic brothers have a warm sibling relationship (even when they're trying to make each other snarf milk out of their noses), and though they get called into the Principal's office now and then, the trouble they make is always in good fun. Plus, she's their mom, so she always gives them a ride home.  Not a bad end to an exciting day.
 
The short chapters make great bedtime reads—though beware!  You might be tempted to stay up all night playing Underfoodle or the Frying-Pan Game.
 
With lots of puns and just the right amount of gross-out humor, this updated edition contains three stories about the Riot Brothers, plus lists, lists, and more lists—including the Riot Brother Rules, all their games, and the extra-special Riot Brother Top Ten List of Important Things To Be Able To Do With Your Face.
 
It also features an updated paper over board cover, sneakily covered in shiny underpants, and a preview of Riot Brothers #2: Drooling and Dangerous.
Libraries will have a hard time keeping "Snarf Attack" on the shelf and readers will beg for a sequel.

What a great book! Smart and funny. Both my 7 year old son and I laughed out loud reading this one, but it's not just one of those goofy "boy" books about boogers and butts. It is well written and a joy to read out loud. I loved how Amato sneaked in a line or two that almost bordered on poetic. Can't wait to read the rest of the books.
