John-Paul is the son of the factory owner. When his father has some important employees come to dinner, John-Paul has to be there, too and he’s just plain bored. This mischievous young man decides to add worms from his fishing bait to their shrimp salads and then sits back to watch their reactions!
This is the sort of naughty story that children love. It is illustrated throughout in a humorous manner that will certainly enhance the story’s appeal to children. It is a charming short story that will have young readers laughing out loud – until the mischief-maker discovers the consequences of his actions as it all backfires on him!
This is a great story for any parent or teacher looking for something to get children giggling. It is witty and will appeal to youngsters who will find it easy to relate to John-Paul and his antics. It would be interesting to discuss their reactions when his antics backfire on him! I can easily think of some children who I’ve taught who would enjoy reading this book time and time again, I just hope it wouldn’t inspire them to try the same prank on anyone!
Thanks to the authors, publisher and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
