Mischief and Mayhem
Good news!! You can add ONE MORE book to your Dahl book list–a new book called Mischief and Mayhem! It’s a compilation of mischief making stories from Roald Dahl’s books plus delightful mischief-making ideas for YOU to do on your own. It’s a quick read and is sure to be a new April Fools Day favorite.
Remember when Augustus Gloop jumped into the chocolate river when touring Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory? That’s one of the stories in Mischief and Mayhem! Next is a trick that you can do — a hot chocolate trick that has you mixing hot chocolate but giving someone gravy instead. BLEURGHHHH.
Read the story from Mr. Fox about stealing chickens from Boggis’s Chicken House Number One. After you read that, learn “How to Steal a Prehistoric Creature.” All you need is one time machine, one sherry trifle, and one net. Easy peasy.
Kids will discover stories in Mischief and Mayhem from many of Roald Dahl‘s books. This is sure to get them interested in reading the books again or for the first time. Plus, they’ll enjoy the whimsical illustrations by Quentin Blake — they’re always a perfect companion to the stories, don’t you think? And of course, you’ll learn impressive and practical tricks such as how to disguise yourself as a coconut tree and how to make a chocolate brussel sprout pie. What’s not to love about that?
Favorite Roald Dahl Books
So what Roald Dahl books have you read and enjoyed?
I’ve included 13 Roald Dahl books in this booklet –with space for including another book of your own choosing.
**I HOPE you all have read the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator — it’s such a fun adventure in a most amazing elevator. Think craziness and outer space with Willy Wonka and both sets of Charlie’s grandparents.
If you haven’t read The Vicar of Nibbleswicke, check it out. It’s short and so stinkin’ funny. My students would laugh out loud (not just inside their heads) at the silliness. I encourage you to read it!
