    A Barrel of Laugh, A Vale of Tears

    Since I was a little kid, A Barrel of Laughs, A Vale of Tears by Jules Feiffer has been one of my favorite books. This book has laughs, problems, solutions, love, twists, and happy endings. Jules Feiffer paints a picture in your head, and sometimes, even talks right to you.
    Roger is a prince, but he has a problem. Everyone he meets, even animals, burst out laughing when they see him. Roger finds this, and everything else, hilarious. His father, King Whatchamacallit, does not like this, or in his words "like not this does". He thinks that Roger lacks the ability to take the throne. J. Wellington Wizard, the king's old wizard, sends Roger on a quest through the forever forest. This is supposed to turn Roger from a laughingstock to a worthy heir to the throne. J. Wellington also sends a bag of magic powder with Roger so that if he needs to, he will transform into something else to avoid causing outbreaks of laughter. He never knows what he will be. Roger has to overcome a mountain of obstacles to complete his quest, which through a surprising turn of events, does not turn out as expected.
    I have loved this book from the moment I first read it. It has humor, fantasy, and a really good storyline. I definitely recommend this book for someone, like me, who loves to laugh.

    I Also Recommend:

    A profound coming-of-age tale disguised as a funny children's story

    This story reads as a parody of medieval fiction, but hidden within are excellent lessons on friendship, maturity, responsibility, character, change, destiny, and mentoring.

    Eccentric and Funny

    It was extraordinarily funny in some parts,yet it lacked something in other parts of the book. Still, Jules Feiffer is a very witty author and I enjoyed reading this book.

    Wonderful read!

    I believe that is one of the best books to sit down with for a good chuckle. Very little of it is dull and the way he digs things up out of the plot that you have almost forgotten is delightful. I suggest you read it in a short period of time.
