The Power of Positive Pranking

The Power of Positive Pranking by Nat Amoore (Puffin) PB RRP $14.99 ISBN 9780143796381

Reviewed by Dianne Bates

It’s school assembly time and suddenly an alarm clock rings. Moments later another from a different direction in the audience, then another. The aim of this prank is to alert students and teachers to saving the planet. 

The saboteurs are three children who, calling themselves the Green Peas, have a manifesto aimed at staying off the grid and taking every opportunity to make a difference to the world. Their aim is to go for maximum exposure and maximum effect while remaining under the radar. When something is wrong, they believe, then they should act.

Using humour, Amoore brings originality -- think a stampede of fluffy guinea pigs and more -- to her idea of a kid’s own adventure. Readers aged 8 to 12 years are sure to enjoy this book. 

Amoore is the author of Secrets of a Schoolyard Millionaire (Puffin) was favourably reviewed previously in and has been a runaway bestseller.
