Happy “Mischief Monday” all!
If you notice the title of the blog today, I have a “Book FEATURE” instead of a “Book REVIEW” Why? Because Mom didn’t have time to read this book to me!!!
Instead of doing a normal “REVIEW” I am going to give you information about the book: RILEY MACK and the Other Known Troublemakers by Chris Grabenstein ( perfect for Mischief Monday!) that was sent to Mom and I by the publisher, HarperCollins, and we are going to give YOU a chance to win a copy!
From the publisher:
In this merry, mischievous romp, master storyteller Chris Grabenstein introduces Riley Mack-a twelve-year-old hometown hero with a talent for plotting schemes in the name of justice. Like an Ocean’s Eleven for tweens, this mystery-comedy features an uproarious cast of “known troublemakers” including aspiring actress Briana, tech wiz Jake, *vocab-obsessed lockpicker Jamal, and the large-but-sweet Mongo.
As Riley leads his gang through a series of capers that ultimately results in a foiled bank robbery and the rescue of fifty-seven adorable puppies, readers will enjoy the dramatic interplay of the characters and the unfolding of the mystery as well as the fast-paced action and humor.
