How far will Ellie May go for a laughand a little revengewhen her class is allowed to celebrate April Fools' Day?
Quirky and funny second grader Ellie May can't believe her class is allowed to celebrate April Fools' Dayso long as it's done in good fun. She absolutely loves the idea of targeting a certain someonethe practically perfect Ava. Practicing on her parents and sisters, Ellie May begins to brainstorm harmless pranks. Soon enough, good intentions turn the classroom and her home upside-down when fake ants, trick tape, and hidden surprises don't go as planned. Ellie May may not be perfect like Miss-Know-it-All Ava, or calm and rational like her best friend Lizzy, but she's good-hearted and eventually realizes that the best trick is to make friends genuinely laughat no one's expense.
