Description

Where’s my homework? Who took my other sock? What’s that in my belly button? The creators of the #1 New York Times bestselling and Academy Award–winning The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore have found the answers to these and other life mysteries…and no, it’s not your fault!

Strange smells. Disappearing remotes. That itch you just can’t reach. It’s not your fault! It’s the Mischievians, an ancient race of global mischief-makers who do all the things that embarrass you. All the things that bug you. All the things that YOU get blamed for!

There is no cause for alarm (sorta). Come meet the Homework Eater, the fiend who steals your homework! See the Endroller, the villain who uses up ALL the toilet paper! Discover the Yawn Mower, the creature who makes you yawn at the worst possible time! And many, many more. Read on, and be free.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 23, 2013 – Worry not, kids. Missing a sock? Homework vanished into the ether? Just realized you have “a booger dangling out of your nose and you know it’s been there maybe all day and everybody has probably seen it?” It isn’t your fault. These and other woes are caused by implike creatures known as Mischievians, as two siblings learn courtesy of one Dr. Maximilian Zooper. Joyce (the Guardians of Childhood) structures his story as a guide to the Mischievians, from Mista Blista—a smiley, blister-causing shoe-lurker—to the skateboard riding Itchy and dreaded Earworm. The book’s Q&A format is jokey and informal, with kidlike queries (“Why do I sometimes get a thorn thingy stuck in my foot when I walk barefoot in the grass?”) and lightheartedly informative responses. Clever touches abound in Joyce’s whimsically imagined portraits of the creatures, with their odd tufts of hair, spindly appendages, and assorted suction cups, horns, and accessories. If a tad long to read through start to finish (is a Mischievian also responsible for squirming?), there’s great fun to be had discovering the sources of everyday annoyances. Ages 5–8.
