Mind-bendingly funny short stories for 8 to 12-year-olds


Amazon customer ~ I really enjoyed this book! Reading it with my nephews made it funnier because of the crazy things their imagination created. Each story has a unique component that made the situation very silly and the characters had to go out of their way to fix it. My favorite story was Out of Control, funny but very interesting to see how the kids end up working together. A great book for kids!”

Amazon customer ~ “A hilarious collection of short stories for children, Tom Moffat’s Mix-Up Mayhem is a delightful read. Following a series of misadventures and impossible situations, the reader joins Tim Hoffman as he tries to understand the chaos that surrounds him. The book is well written with lovely illustrations sure to capture and maintain the interest of any child. Moffat is truly a master storyteller and really understands the mind of kids and what they think of/find interesting. I also liked how the stories even though silly, still manage to teach some sort of lesson but without being heavy-handed. A fun read for the entire family, Mix-Up Mayhem is sure to be a book that one will revisit time and again.”
