Take the Mummy and Run: The Riot Brothers Are on a Roll Take the Mummy and Run: The Riot Brothers Are on a Roll by Mary Amato

Orville and Wilbur Riot are two brothers who never stop. Never stop talking, stop joking, stop hatching plans. Whether it’s Pufferbelly Point Punt (popcorn table hockey) for breakfast or leading a lost mummy to the Egypt room at the museum, their exuberance, admiration for one another, and manic, funny antics are a hoot to read.
Colonel Mustard and I couldn’t stop giggling. One of our favorite parts:

“Orville starting scrubbing his toes with a toothbrush and singing.
We laughed.
Mom came in. ‘Orville! It’s disgusting to use your toothbrush for that.’
‘I’m not using my toothbrush,’ he said. ‘I’m using yours. And my piggies love it!’
Mom made Orville’s little piggies march over to his little piggy bank. He had to give her his own money to buy a new toothbrush.’

Pure, silly fun. We’re off to find Riot Brothers books #1-3.
