Product 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 Booklist

Using the model of Joyce’s The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore (2012), which has its own iPad app and animated short, the name of the game for new imprint Moonbot Booksis media interactivity. But it all starts with the book. The premise of Moonbot’s debut is simple and kid friendly: how can we explain the things that annoy us? For instance, where do missing socks go? Well, it’s certainly not your fault one disappears; blame the Sock Stalker, one of many Mischievians, “an ancient race of mischief-makers.” The book’s setup is brief, as two kids find themselves in Dr. Zooper’s laboratory, where they’re introduced to an encyclopedia explaining the Mischievians. From there the book becomes a Q&A, as the kids make queries (“Where do blisters come from?”) and Dr. Zooper responds. Kids may tire of the lengthy question-and-answer sessions, but the illustrations of the various Mischievians, courtesy of Moonbot Studios, are amusing. As with the introduction, the book concludes abruptly. Not the most cohesive story line, but the concept is likely to win fans. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The brainchild of Joyce, and a joint venture between a major publisher and an artists’ studio, this should get a ton of press. Grades 2-4. --Ann Kelley

I bought this book for my daughter at the recommendation of a friend. It’s unique and fairly funny, though it’s not as funny as I expected it to be. But, my main problem is the lack of diversity. All of the mischevians are referred to as “he” and there is not a single brown or black face in the book. Not one, human or otherwise. That’s a big issue for me, and I wouldn’t recommend the book to anyone who cares about representation.

I love William Joyce books and this was no exception. I was a little thrown by the style at first, but it didn''t take long to settle into it. My son and I started reading it before bed one night, thinking we would just read a bit because it was late, and we would finish it the next night. Nope - neither of us could put it down. The Mischievians are hilarious, creative, and completely relatable. With almost ever creature, we had to stop reading so Little Dude could tell me about a time that this Mischievian must have created a situation in his life. It was really cool to hear him recalling stories from his own life and embracing the fantasy from this book.

I thought my son would get a kick out of "The Dangler" since he''s a bit gross, and my kid usually likes gross things. But his absolute favorite is the LintBellian. Hands Down. He might be my favorite, too, but it''s hard to choose. The other great thing about this book is that my son really doesn''t love to read. He can read, but he would rather I just read to him. But with this book, he picks it up and reads it on his own at least weekly. Very few books have been able to capture his attention in that way, which means I love it even more.

Great book! We first read it at the library and loved it so much we purchased it. The kids find it hilarious and refer to everything now as a Mischievian.

I got this book five years ago for my great nephews. Today I told my niece I had recommended it to a friend for her grandsons and she told me my great nephews *still* talk about the Mischievians that occupy their house. I’d say that’s a good book.

This is one of my kids'' favorite books. The illustrations are fantastic and the story is so cute! I love that it is open ended and encourages the kids to keep thinking of new Mischievians on their own! Such a great idea!

My grandchildren love this book and my enthusiastic reading brings it to life. They are still making up new Mischievians every week and calling me about them. We have become obsessed about Mischievians.

Such a giggle

The mischievians is a brilliant book to read with the kids. We all enjoyed it and the different mischievians that were depicted in the book. Expands the imagination into what other mischievians could be in existence.
