Mischief and Mayhem

Sometimes doing the right thing isn't so easy. In their new collaboration for emerging readers, Hi, Jack!, Mac Barnett and Greg Pizzoli introduce a mischievous bunny who has a hard time with impulse control. In Brigette Barrager's Vlad the Rad, a young vampire would rather ride his skateboard than play by the rules of school!

Hi, Jack!

From New York Times bestselling author Mac Barnett and Geisel Award-winning illustrator Greg Pizzoli, an uproarious early reader series about a mischievous rabbit, a cranky old lady, and a lovable dog.

Meet Jack: He lives in a tree house. His interests include snacks, petty theft, and lipstick graffiti. Jack also loves his friends, he just has a funny way of showing it sometimes . . .

A perfect read-aloud with snappy, rhythmic text, this series will bridge the gap between picture books and chapter books and fill the Elephant-and-Piggie-shaped hole in young readers’ hearts.
