How many cool things can you do? The answer will amaze you -- and the secrets are all in this witty and nearly wordless book.

Are you the crafty type? Try drawing some manga or customizing your sneakers. Got a soft spot for science? Dazzle your friends with the old exploding volcano trick, then slyly ease an egg into a bottle. Or you can really get cooking by slipping fortunes into a batch of cookies and folding them like a pro. From taking funny fake photos to breeding butterflies, from running a ninja obstacle course to reading minds to, yes, whipping up some edible fake barf, here is the source for learning how to do absolutely everything. With minimal text and maximal humor, these simple illustrated instructions will have kids psyched to:
-- Investigate (science projects anyone can do)
-- Create (arts, crafts, and personal style)
-- Explore (adventures in the great outdoors)
-- Cook (recipes for tasty -- and terrifying -- treats)
-- Move (sports, games, and playground acrobatics)
-- Amaze (tricks, pranks, and awesome acts).
Back matter includes an index, and information about how to get involved.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "This lively illustrated activity book delivers concise instructions for a variety of indoor and outdoor activities. Projects include crafts, pranks and magic tricks; ideas for nature exploration; and other purely entertaining feats (such as building a "jiggly city" out of gelatin). Many activities are basic-with makeup, it's easy to "become a zombie"-but a good number of them, like "sport a comic-book tote," will require additional skill. The instructions are heavy on graphics and light on detail, making for an eye-catching but potentially frustrating experience. But readers should enjoy the irreverence and variety. Ages 10-14.
