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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love the Mischievians! We got this when our kids were 5 and 9, over a year later and they both still enjoy it as much as the first day! They enjoyed it so much, we bought extra copies for the school library and for gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful! Delightful! Utter nonsense. Set up like an encyclopedia that describes the little creatures "Mischievians" that cause all the havoc in one's life like missing homework, the odd sock syndrome, strange smells, itches you can't reach, sticky hands, etc. Starts and ends with a little set-up story but mostly just a Question and Answer format with a pager per creature. Quite hilarious. Does include a couple of "toilet" variety humour. And, of course, profusely illustrated with Joyce's magnificent illustration!
