A collection of jokes about doctors and patients, including Patient: "Doctor, Doctor, my sister thinks she's an elevator." Doctor: "Send her right up."
School Library JournalGr 1-2-Each of these easy-readers offers a scant 15 jokes that are more or less familiar and a little flat: "Patient: `Doctor, doctor, my sister just swallowed my pencil.' Doctor: `Then use a pen.'" Laughs is a little more appealing: "What kind of pet can tell time? A watchdog"; "How does a rabbit feel if it breaks a leg? Unhoppy." Both titles include flat, digitally prepared cartoon illustrations in bold colors. Good joke books are always welcome, but these are insufficient and insubstantial. Pass in favor of Katy Hall and Lisa Eisenberg's whimsical riddle books (Dial).-Marilyn Taniguchi, Beverly Hills Public Library, CA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
