Hi Everyone!

I am so excited to share this book with you because it is one that you probably have never heard of and will probably become one of your favorites. I learned about this book from one of my friends who comments on my Studio B page. Isn't sharing books great!

This books is right up there with Diary of a Wimpy Kid that is full of gags and LOL fun. It teaches positive messages so mom and dad like it too. Let me know what you think about th

Wonderful book for kids! As a mom of three boys, I know it can be tough to find something that they want to read. Mine loved The Underwear Dare. My son read an excerpt to his 3rd grade class and they liked it so much, the teacher is now reading it to them. It is funny and warm and entertaining. The characters are likable. It is the story of two boys, one who has been bullied since kindergarten and the other the bully. Their parents marry and they are forced to share a room. It is a great book fo ...more

My 6-year-old son and I enjoyed reading this book together. We took turns reading pages and he did just fine, though he reads at a 3rd grade level. I'd never heard of this book until it came up in a search result on I read some reviews and they all seemed positive, but one review in particular got my attention.

My son has several Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and a few Big Nate books, but after reading a few of those with him, I didn't really like the main characters and how they constan

This book is thoroughly inappropriate . . . and I loved it!

As a "finicky homeschool mom," I'm pretty discerning about what I allow my kids to read. This book is loaded with testosterone, but it's my 11yo daughter that I will allow to read it. The book is chock-full of scatological humor, something that will appeal to some kids, and utterly gross out others (like my very proper 14yo son!).

It's the backstory that makes this book worth its weight Without giving too much away, it's

I loved this book!!!!! My son, Quinn, is in 4th grade and he had a book comparison report to do. He read one title on his own and we read this one aloud together. Eddie and Josh are step-brothers but Josh is scared of Eddie because Eddie is a bully. Not only do they now share a home, but they also share a room. Josh's dad mentions that they are going to fix up the attic and the boys have to decide who gets the room. This starts a series of dares that will determine who wins the room. The book is ...more

“The Underwear Dare” by the Nardini Sisters is a lighter look on the dark issue of bullying. Fifth grade boys “dare” each other to do socially outrageous things, one being the bully and the other being the nerd. The “dares” get funnier and become hilarious as the book develops. To me, the humor is age-appropriate and captures what boys tend to do, that we as adults look back on and keep as funny stories to tell on one another. Excellent work, 5 stars!

This was really funny and so typical of young boys! I loved the way they made decisions but I would have always lost because they had far more guts than I ever would have! No way could I have done the dares they come up with! Although I basically knew way ahead how it was gonna play out I was happy with the ending and the surprise the boys got was neat and I can't wait to see in a later book how they cope with that as well.

I got this because I follow the Nardini Sisters on Twitter. Their posts were interesting so I checked this out.

I'm happy I discovered this.

The book was funny, not sappy and it ended better than expected. I actually laughed out loud at one point that involved hiccups. The characters were believable and realistic. It was a short book, but it was a well done complete story.

Good book

I knew this book was going to be good, and I love to read "funny." The story could not have been better. I loved it, and I have way more knowledge about creating smelly gas than a grown-up ever should. I recommend it to everybody! Especially boys of all ages, and girls of all ages who would love to understand boys!

I purchased this for my 9 year old granddaughter. While reading this I could hear her upstairs laughing and she wanted to read me parts of the book. She finished and is now reading it to me and her younger brother. From what I have heard so far, very well written. I asked my granddaughter for her review and she said "very very very very funny".

Well, I thought it was really funny because it's all about these two boys that are step brothers and they absolutely bate each other which is funny because they don't fight that much when they are doing the bets. But the thing that I noticed was that when I was reading sometimes I had NO idea who was talking!

Um, I'm obviously not the target audience for this book. It's written for 5th grade boys. Way too many fart jokes for my liking.
