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!
