Ellen: Mischief Manual is a manual for mischief, as the name states. It
tells you everything that has to do with pranks: from how to prank and who
to prank, to the perfect secret hideout for planning your pranks. All you
need to know about making trouble is inside.
Edgar & Ellen: Mischief Manual is an add-on for Edgar & Ellen fans.
It gives more to the series, by taking an element of the Edgar & Ellen books
and making it into a how-to guide. The topic of the manual works well as a
companion to the series because Edgar & Ellen are all about mischief. Even
though itís just your run-of-the-mill manual, and not a novel, it was a very
The cover of the book works with the title and has lots of color making it
very eye-catching but once you turn the cover itís a little disappointing
because thereís no color at all. The lack of color makes the inside of the
book a bit bland and dull to look at, which might disappoint readers. The
overall layout of the bookís topics is in a good order, starting from the
least important, up to the most important. The humorous footnotes in the
book also make it more interesting and fun to read.
I would recommend this book to kids 12 and under because itís easy to read,
and the whole series is more geared towards that age group.
I give the Edgar & Ellen: Mischief Manual 4 stars.
