While the book does not directly teach your kids any pranks, it gets their creativity flowing. After reading this, my oldest son thought it would be funny to send me an email at work, when he knew I would be giving a presentation and the email title would show up in my lower left corner of my laptop, which I was projecting to a group of coworkers. So while i'm discussing the state of the financial market, this email pops up in my lower left corner saying "Hey, I need my toenail clippers back". Coworkers got a chuckle... those crazy kids!
This was a required reader for my incoming third grader… he and his 4th grade brother loved it.
The I challenge to use what they have learned about simple machines to construct a catapult at home to use in a marshmellow war at school.
You should read The Gadget war! It is an amazing book about this girl named Kelly who loves inventing until a boy named Albert comes and thinks that he is better at inventing than her!
My 3rd-grade class all got to read this book because it's short and fun. It is on our Accelerated Reader list, and we all loved it!

Kelly Sparks makes points with her classmates because she is the gadget whiz. When a new boy comes to the school, he calls himself the "read" gadget whiz. The two begin a gadget war, each trying to out-do the other. When the pair get into trouble for hitting the principal with an orange, they discover the real reason for rules--not hurting others--and that the "mean" principal has a sense of humor and is a real person.

I ordered this book, asked for overnight shipping because of a deadline (the book was needed for a school report) and only learned the day it was supposed to arrive (afte receiving a confirmation that the book was in stock and would be there on time) that I would not receive it until 5 days later! I called Amazon to cancel and they also cancelled my 90 free shipping trial and refused to reinstate it. It was probably the worst online buying experience I have ever had.
