Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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. (Mar.)
Kirkus Reviews
Practical jokers longing for a go-to source of ideas for low-effort pranks need look no further. Advising readers to choose a victim "who has a sense of humor and can't flunk you," and also to "be funny, not mean," Winterbottom offers over 72 smirk-worthy projects. These range from classics like poking a hole beneath the rim of a can of soda and short-sheeting a bed to slicing a banana without peeling it or creating a fake computer desktop. The entries are neatly alphabetized and interspersed with anecdotes about notable pranks and pranksters through the ages. All offer setup instructions and suggestions for enhancing the effects both verbally and, in Allen's accompanying cartoon panels, visually. Pranks that will make an unusual mess or require adult cooperation are so flagged. Handy recipes include fake bird poop, edible (theoretically) dog poop, vomit, spilled milk, bloody teeth and two kinds of snot. The author also appends an array of faux can labels ("Cream of Sparrow"), fortune-cookie fortunes, signs, letters from school and other ready-to-use "goods" to cut out or reproduce. Fun for some. (Faux reference. 10-13)
