April Fools

and May Fools, and June Fools ...

I HATE practical jokes!! But, for those of you who enjoy them, here's a book with some harmless ideas for pranks:
Funny Business : Clowning Around, Practical Jokes, Cool Comedy, Cartooning, and More by Helaine Becker

If you're looking for something with a bit more substance, try The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart. It's about a teen who infiltrates and shakes up "The Loyal Order of the Basset Hounds," an all male secret society who claims her boyfriend as a member. The book has received much critical acclaim. It was a National Book Award for Young People's Literature Finalist and received the 2009 Michael L. Printz Award. But don't let that scare you away. It's a good read, and that's no joke!
