Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the definitive guide to pranking and mayhem. Written in the style of a training manual, but with hilarious illustrations, this book is broken up into five sections. The “Basics” shows kids how to find a pranking partner and how to pull simple pranks like making crank calls. “Prank Moves” explains how to pull pranks at places like home, school, or camp. “Do-It-Yourself” demonstrates things like putting a real worm inside an ice cube. “Experts Only” covers such advanced pranks as how to fake an alien landing. And “Recipes” gives step-by-step instructions on how to bake tuna cookies.

Review:

"Fans of the Dangerous Book for Boys should appreciate this detailed manual, complete with vintage-style illustrations on how to successfully pull off pranks. While adamant about safety — 'If you have to ask a question about someone getting hurt, then you shouldn't be doing it' — the book offers ideas for making mischief that are frisky enough to get a rise out of their targets. Pranks include making a 'Screaming Cabinet' (using the device from musical greeting cards), creating the 'World's Largest Butt Photo' and faking an alien landing. What's most appealing, however, is the emphasis on being clever, creative and funny while making mischief. Ages 8 — 12. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
