Mischief Series – Menace

Menace by Stefania Shaffer

Training for a Menace

Soon-to-be seventh grader, Slater Hannigan, wants his frenemy, Sibley White, to forgive him. This won’t be the only apology he’ll have to make.

Soon enough, Slater and Chicky will decide the class field trip is worth ditching—until they get caught—upending Slater’s life as he knows it when he is sent to a summer survival camp.

What heart-pounding adventures Slater experiences at Elmer Woods will be worse than any of his legendary Halloween Haunts.

MENACE appears third in the 4-book Mischief Series for Middle-Grade readers.

Dear Reader,

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

But you don’t have to keep Menace a secret from the world. In fact, would you be willing to go straight to 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, Chicky, and, of course, me.

It’s pretty easy. Just go to: 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
