Publisher's Summary

Megin is 12; her brother Greg is 14. Megin is a slob; Greg is fastidious. They call each other Megamouth and Grosso. Between the two, the household is filled with their teasing and fighting. They are experts at the usual games of sibling rivalry and experts at inventing new ones. From carefully-planted cockroaches to creme doughnut fights, Megin and Greg's antics keep them in constant trouble. But even as they think up new ways to bug each other, they are also growing up. Soon, their rivalry will put them both to tests that have higher stakes than either Megin or Greg can imagine.
Jerry Spinelli, a Newbery Medalist, has raised six children, so he has plenty of firsthand information about kids like Megin and Greg. This energetic audiobook is a riotous trip through the early teenage years, especially with its dual narration by two of the most spirited readers of children's literature. If you enjoy this book, listen to Jerry Spinelli's Crash, an ALSC Notable Recording.

Childhood favorite

I don't usually read children's literature (or even YA) as an adult, but I was thinking about this book recently, a favorite of mine as a kid, and decided to see if it held up.

It did.

A tale of sibling rivalry, the antics between Megan and Greg are funny, believable, and charmingly told from each point of view.

Well-developed supporting characters add so much color to this witty, heartwarming story. I caught myself smiling, and even laughing out loud, so many times as I listened.

This is a story as gripping as it is goofy. You'd never expect such an emotionally progressing plot from a book with a title like this.

I read this book over and over as a kid, and I have to say, the narration pretty much did it justice. Especially Megan's voice. The voice of Greg was well narrated, but I thought the actor had more of an older quality to his voice, in spite od capturing the spirit of the character.

All in all, I'm so glad I listened to this one after so many years since reading it. This will continue to go down in history as one of my favorite books.
