About the Author

Bart King writes funny—and educational!—books for kids and immature adults. (His title The Big Book of Boy Stuff was once’s top-selling children’s book.) As a young lad, Bart discovered he could punch people into outer space. Sadly, he lost a lot of friends that way. Today, Bart is recognized as one of the world’s leading superhero experts. (And as a longtime middle school teacher, he is also highly sought after by supervillains!)

King's writing style is humorous and fast-paced. As a former middle-school teacher, he is familiar with what appeals to kids. He includes many interesting, odd facts about a variety of topics. Mischief made by many famous people, including world leaders and members of royalty, is incorporated nicely into this book. There are also a few chapters dedicated to unusual vocabulary words that children will undoubtedly remember. Kids may not realize they are learning while they are reading such a fun book. 'The Pocket Guide to Mischief' focuses on how to play fun, non-hurtful pranks. For pranks played on an individual, the reader is then taught how to choose a proper nemesis to focus on. The author lists five easy safety rules, and even supplies a short, fun quiz to help determine how much of a mischief maker one is. Some of the antics Bart King writes about remind me of another Bart-- Bart Simpson. As someone who has spent a lot of time around children, King has definitely had first-hand experience with mischief makers. This adds plausibility to the book because children will believe in, or respect, someone more if they know that person really understands what it is like to be their age and what kinds of things they face on a daily basis. 'The Pocket Guide to Mischief' is a light, entertaining, and easy read. Children will get a kick out of it and will likely learn a few things in the process. Parents should read the book too so they can be sure the child understands the importance of safety when playing pranks.

Bart King has done it again. This book is his irreverent take on mischief through the ages, and it also includes many victimless gags that will provide chuckles. It's very funny, and is the kind of thing that kids will love and immature adults will get a charge out of also.

3 things 1. I put mines in today, will i be in?respond on next book plz 2. I am also a friend finder 3. Hey guys heres my sacred quest story... Amy was falling fast. There was was no time to scream or anything. She was just falling. Then all of a sudden, she plopped down on a bird. It wasnt like those small birds on earth, this was a huemongus bird. The size of a school bus. Avery soon found herself trying to hold on to this bird as it went upside down and in spirals. Jewel eye and coco were right beside her as jewel eye clasped the birds beack. "Jump on avery!!" Coco shouted. Avery jumped just as jewel eyed let go. "I guess we wont be going around the jendoe birds." Jewel eyed said as he examined his scar. "Are you ok?" Avery asked him." Yes im fine," jewel eyed said" you must be avery and whats your name human child?" Jewel eyed said as he pointed to coco." She is coco." Avery said before coco said any thing. Jewel didnt answer as he flew the bird they were on. They flew to a Gigantic( and i mean gigantic) island with vines hanging from it. Without any sound, they stepped on the island dock and followed jewel eyed to a blue building called The mechanic. "Leia you lousy tortule!!" Jewel eyed shouted," you better come here this instant!!" Just then, a tall elf came behind a rusty shelf." What do you want jewel?" She said. -Thanks for reading. Im sooooooo sorry it was late. Hope for it to be on the second diary of a wimpy kid book. It wont be late i promise!
