Mischief-Book 1

Getting Away with Mischief

Fifth grader Slater Hannigan wants to keep his big man on campus status. It does not matter that he glued his teacher’s chair cushion to her skirt last year—he gets away with everything because of his powerful mother who has secured his popularity by throwing him over-the-top Halloween Haunts.

But when the friendless girl in class discovers the secret that will finally mean real trouble for Slater if he gets caught—and embarrass his father the D.A.—this one will be too big for her to keep.

MISCHIEF appears as the first in a 4-book series for Middle-Grade readers.


~Praise for MISCHIEF-Book 1~

“I highly recommend Stefania Shaffer’s hilarious middle-grade novel, MISCHIEF, featuring crazy misadventures…perilous pranks…and fresh characters for young readers…”

Penny Warner, best-selling author of over 60 books for adults and children, including the Agatha Award winning middle-grade mystery series, THE CODE BUSTERS CLUB


    “MISCHIEF enables us to remember what it’s like to be a kid, especially as it relates to boyhood…Anyone involved in education…will find MISCHIEF relatable, funny and engaging.”

                                                                                                                 —Evona Mozulay Panycia, Science Educator, Middle School and College Level, Bernards Township School District and Fairleigh Dickinson University, Madison, NJ


“In MISCHIEF…characters become so real…hear them interacting as Stefania masterfully weaves this tale. Cliffhangers abound, leaving readers…salivating for the next book.”

                               —Daina Lujan, Principal, Millbrae School District; Vice President, South San Francisco Unified School District Board of Trustees


“Inspiring and heart-rending, MISCHIEF captures the essence of that student who does not yet believe in his own potential. Beyond the pulse-racing plot, readers will be turning pages at a clip to root for Slater Hannigan, hoping he learns the most worthwhile lesson of all—empathy.”

Audrey Fairchild, English Language Arts Educator, Ph.D, Hillsborough City School District

Dear Reader,

Did you enjoy Mischief? Is your heart still racing? Are you wondering what will happen to our fine friends in the next book? Oh, it is delicious. But I’m sworn to secrecy.

But you don’t have to keep Mischief a secret from the world. In fact, would you be willing to go straight to amazon.com to write an honest review for the author? She is competing against all of those other books you read and is hoping to get your friends interested in reading all about Slater, Macaroni, and, of course, me.

It’s pretty easy. Just go to www.amazon.com and then type in Stefania Shaffer.

Find the book, write a review, add some stars and then, snap, you’re done.

As for me, I have already cleared a special spot on my shelf for all four of the new books in the Mischief Series. See you in the V.I.P. Club!

Yours truly,

Sibley White
