I only wish I’d been given this book when I was nine.

Packed with terrific pranks and stunts. The illustrations are hilarious.

I tried several of these stunts out on my patients. They didn’t laugh, but I sure did.

You never know when you might need to amuse your friends, distract an enemy, impress or gross out a loved one, or test your own credulity. For all of the above reasons, it seems reasonable to expect that Sam Bartlett’s collection will soon join the Gideon Bible in the top drawer of your favorite motel’s dresser.
