What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Ellie May can’t believe her class is allowed to celebrate April Fools’ Day—so long as it’s done in good fun. Practicing on her parents and sisters, Ellie May brainstorms harmless pranks. Soon enough, good intentions turn her classroom and home upside-down when fake ants, trick tape, and hidden surprises don’t go as planned. Ellie May may not be perfect like Miss-Know-itAll Ava but she eventually realizes that the best trick is to make friends genuinely laugh—at no one’s expense.
