Overview

Pete likes to play pranks. It doesn't matter what it is as long as it gets a laugh. When he impersonates his vice-principal on a radio call-in show, he goes too far and is suspended from school. Pete's parents send him to spend the summer working with his uncle, a whale-watching guide in a tourist town far from the city. When a whale is injured by a reckless tour guide, Pete struggles to save the animal. Then Pete has to pull the most important prank of his life to bring the guide to justice.

Read an Excerpt

Uncle Jean did the one thing you're never supposed to do in a kayak. He leaned over hard, so that all his weight bore down on one side of the kayak. And Uncle Jean is big. We were about to capsize.
Aunt Daisy's words rang in my head, like a song you can't forget, no matter how hard you try. "Three minutes until you lose sensation in your extremities."
I wriggled my fingers and toes. While I still could.

No More Pranks is mainly about a boy named Joseph. His father sent Joseph to Montreal to live with his uncle, because he always does prank non-stop. After, he met this girl named Rosalie. When they started to hang-out she told Joseph to stop doing pranks; it's a bad thing to do. When I started to read No More Pranks, it was getting really interesting, because it started off when Joseph was sent to Montreal, Rosalie thinks Joseph is doing pranks, because he's really stressed about how his life. No More Pranks is a Realistic Fiction. The author's writing style is she is trying tell is when the book said the characters is doing pranks it doesn't really mean that the person who is ready the book can do pranks too. I like this book because it tells what some people do and trying to find a way to stop. When the victim sees a humpback whale they kill it. I would rate this as a 5 star.

It's about boys who go fishing. They are always joking around while they are fishing. I thought it was boring. -D.G

After pulling yet another prank and getting caught, this time on the vice principal, Pete ends up having to spend the summer with his uncle, who owns a kayaking company in Tadoussac. Both his uncle and a girl he works with ask him to carry out no more pranks. In the middle of the night, he gets talked into pulling another prank, and in the midst of carrying it out, they make a very significant discovery. This is a very fast and enjoyable read and would be great for reluctant readers or ESL middle school students who are at least stage two.
