Jackanapes = mischievous child - j (just started) + (on) a + anagram (mess) of pancakes monky

A word I've not seen or heard for a while!

OED seems to be used quite often in crosswords over here to mean dictionary, but then it is a British dictionary: I thought that the sneaky part of this clue was the misdirection in using Latin dictionary to mean LOED.

In any event, you can now locate this about your person:

One synonym, one anagram

Still no takers - I fear the noodles are softening nicely

Looking for a 3-letter synonym for "youngster" which has a u in the middle, adding the adjusted letters of "met Eric" (not necessarily a true anagram in the strictest sense) and splitting these 10 letters to give two words which are a volume. And the second word is spelt differently is the US to what it is in the UK
