April 1 starts off with a bang when Mila's mom and dad play pranks on her. Determined to be the giver of pranks and not the receiver, Mila tries to dream up a way to be the best "prankster" ever. But her friends seem to be way ahead of her. Mila's day gets worse and worse, prank after prank. Will Mila be able to play a successful prank on her friends? Or is she destined to always be the April Fool for her family, friends, and classmates? Deftly written by Sandy Byrd Lawson and nicely illustrated by David Barrow, "Mila Denton is an April Fool!" is an ideal and entertaining story for children ages 5 to 9. While especially recommended for family, elementary school, and community library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "Mila Denton is an April Fool!" is also available in a paperback edition (9780999249703, $9.99).
