The Power of Positive Pranking by Nat Amoore
Casey and her friends learn their local Mayor has nefarious plans for their town – plans that disregard the environment and rely on the town’s voting-aged citizens remaining disengaged from their civic duties. Thankfully, Casey – inspired by her favourite photo of her mum chained to a tree saving a local park – is not as apathetic as the adults of Watterson.
There are a lot of middle grade books out there about all sorts of pranking, but until this book I don’t think I’d come across one about productive pranking. The Power of Positive Pranking shows examples of how chaos and anarchy can be used to achieve good. There are lots of different ways to fight for what’s right, no matter what that may be. The Power of Positive Pranking shows another, slightly more fun way kids can make a difference.
