The Beano Book of Mischief, Mayhem & Fun edited by Matt Yeo


Published by Studio Press, an imprint of Kings Road Publishing, 2018.

This book is a brilliant collection of pranks, games and things to make. There are almost 200 pages and they’re packed full of ways to get up to no good. There are ideas for indoors and outdoors, solo activities and stuff to do with friends. There are old school pastimes such as how to write secret codes and make invisible ink. You can learn new skills like juggling or how to skim a stone. Cause mischief by making the marshmallow catapult, the mini bow and arrow or the rubber band bazooka blaster. There’s lots to encourage children to play outside: vinegar rockets, stick trails, building bug hotels, and making a woodland base. There are quieter games too like battleships and spot the difference. And, in a category all of its own, there’s the recipe for edible snot!

The instructions are short and simple to follow and there are lots of pictures and diagrams to really make things clear.

This book will fire children’s imaginations and creativity, stop them from getting bored, and bring out their mischievous sides!
