Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every day is April Fools' Day. Pure heaven for the prankster, Pranklopedia is as indispensable a compilation of pranks as Jokelopedia is a collection of jokes.


Written by longtime Nickelodeon Magazine editor in chief Julie Winterbottom, Pranklopedia is a complete prank encyclopedia. It includes over 70 pranks, with step-by-step directions; a full-color, sixteen-page insert of supplementary materials, including "tasty" soup can labels (mmm, Cream of Sparrow Soup!) and a "winning" lottery ticket; recipes for such essential prank-stuff as fake snot, fake vomit, fake ice cream; tips on how to pull the perfect prank; profiles of famous pranks and pranksters; even a prank woven right into the book--spot the fake entries in the Prankster Hall of Fame.


As for the pranks themselves--they're priceless. Classics like short sheeting the bed and the dancing dollar. There's the crude--mouse turds in ice--and really crude--make fake, edible dog poop. And there are pranks especially good to pull on your parents-- deliver the "Take Your Teacher Home Day" letter from school and watch them freak out.


One word of caution: Use common sense in deciding how often to use Pranklopedia, or you might find yourself looking for a new place to live.

Review:

"Winterbottom, a former editor-in-chief at Nickelodeon magazine, gathers 72 good-natured pranks that shouldn't cause any long-term rifts, but will still have the desired effect. Organized alphabetically, the pranks each open with a comic from Allen, followed by clear written instructions; profiles of famous pranksters like Benjamin Franklin and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as well as great moments in prankdom, are interspersed. There's a wealth of clever mischief within, from a surefire way to win arm-wrestling contests (hide some mushy banana in your palm) to more advanced tricks, like screen-saver sabotage or creating fake squirting blisters. Ages 8 — 12. Agent: Brenda Bowen, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
