THE PUBLISHER: IMAGINOGGIN, a registered trademark of 2014, this is a name and logo used to appropriately accompany all of my works. (A fitting bald head and gears, this is a combination of my over excessive use of my imagination; that is a frequent, unrelenting occurrence in this noggin of mine.)
SUMMARY: MR. MISCHIEViOUS is the misunderstood and eccentric recluse of the neighborhood. No one is quite sure what MR. MISCHIEViOUS is all about. His dress definitely makes him mischievous, as he wears a long trench coat and over-sized hat, complete with a comical moustache. It doesn’t take long before MR. MISCHIEViOUS finally gets bored with his environment and one day, comes out of hiding unleashing his ‘artistic talents’ upon the unsuspecting neighborhood.
This gets him into some trouble, and as everyone in the neighborhood retaliates, they find out what MR. MISCHIEViOUS really is all about, and why he spends all of his time inside his home.
THE BACK STORY: THE DEViOUS MR. MISCHIEViOUS was really an easy book to write. I wanted to have a fun rhyming scheme in the book that went along with his name, and the only thing I needed was to develop his ‘look’. In order to be mischievous, he had to look the part. I found myself binge watching a lot of ‘COLUMBO’ at the time I was creating this character. Hmmm …
WHY WOULD SOMEONE WANT TO READ IT? MR. MISCHIEViOUS is a fun character, and this book is all about fun. The book is completely in verse with a fun rhyming scheme and some made up rhyming words. He is very imaginative and shares his art in different scenarios within the neighborhood, finally leading up to the revealing of artwork in his home. It is very colorful and there is a ‘surprise’ ending that is guaranteed to make any parent smile when they turn the final page (even if they are unsure of whether to!)

AUTHOR PROFILE: Scott Schafer was born in 1979 and resides outside of Pittsburgh, PA. Since he could hold a pencil, he liked to draw and create different characters and cartoons. Never a writer, Scott wanted to illustrate and write a story he could share with his young son. After discovering a hidden talent, Scott wrote ‘Furry Weather and a Storm of Feathers’, his first illustrated children’s book. Other endeavors, including acting and performing sketch comedy got in the way of completion of this book and finding a way to publish it. Discovering self-publishing for his work finally opened the door to completing the story. Upon satisfaction of completing this book 14 years after it was created, and published in 2014, Scott found a desire to continue writing and illustrating children’s books, and plans many more titles in coming years.
