"Snips and snails and
puppy dog tails..."

Now in paperback, this collection of perfectly decent grown men's confessions about the mischief they made as boys will no doubt jog a few heretofore selective memories. And their tales of grossing out girls and eating bugs will leave perfectly decent grown women gasping with incredulity. With charming black and white images of freckled-faced, tousle-haired boys in all their awkward and goofy glory, here's the perfect giftfor the little rascal who grew up, but still remembers the days when....

5.0 out of 5 stars Mischief! 13 Jun 2000
By Remy Haynes - Published on
My dad is now raising a son, after two daughters and he says whenever his hammer or saw are gone he looks for his son! With us, he says, "You just sat around and played with your Barbie dolls." Boys ARE mischief! This book reflects that perfectly, especially the photographs. Father's Day is around the corner, and I know exactly what I'm getting my dad-this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Breath of Fresh Air! 18 Aug 2000
By Barbara J. Whitehill - Published on
In this day and age of political correctness and the accompanying deadly seriousness with which we too often take ourselves, it just plain wonderful to laugh out loud at the pranks and mischievous things boys do, as chronicled in "Up to No Good." Cheers to Harmon for compiling them and to Gilson for her terrific photos! I applaud mischievous imagination over video games which simulate a frightening violence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outrageously real 22 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on
I had to respond to an earlier review taking exception to Up to No Good, which criticized the book for its contribution to violence in boys. Com' on! This book was a delightful, insightful look at the realities of growing up male. If anything, it seemed to tame some of the realities of boyhood life. I found it interesting that it took a couple of women (editor/photographer) to bring out the foibles, characterisitics, energies, and stupidity that describe boyhood (and manhood!). Hats off to Harmon, Gilson, and Jeszeck (designer) for their excellent recapturing of childhood as only boys could experience it. Can you imagine such a book about girls? Not even possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars as cute as can be 17 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on
I've got a hefty handful of grown "boys" on my own personal gift list who will be getting this book for Father's Day. It's a sweet, terrible, funny look at boyhood. I couldn't put it down. It's also a beautifully designed book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Father's Day Gift! 28 Dec 2000
By A Customer - Published on
As a daughter of a wonderful father, I would like to think that I have a better glimpse into what he must have been like as a boy! We shared laughter while reading the book together and enjoyed blessed moment of closeness through the help of this sweet little book!
