Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Children will easily appreciate the humor, and the book would fir well into classroom collections."
School Library Journal
Children's Literature - Jillian Kobelin
Crack some new jokes with this joke and riddle book based on the PBS series “Martha Speaks” by Susan Meddaugh. Each page provides a short animal-themed joke, which range between one-liners, puns, riddles and knock-knock jokes. The inside back cover provides a matching game where readers can match together dog breed riddles (Example: “What do you get if you cross a small dog with the big city? A New Yorkie!”) The illustrations throughout portray the beloved talking dog Martha along with her human and dog friends. Word bubbles are used to help reveal the jokes. The humor used in this book is age-appropriate for elementary children, sure to elicit giggles from young readers. However, friends and family may begin to groan after hearing the jokes again and again! Budding comedians and Martha fans alike will love having a slew of new jokes to add to their repertoire. Reviewer: Jillian Kobelin; Ages 5 to 7.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—Based on characters created by Meddaugh and portrayed on PBS, this book is full of puns, plays on words, and riddles for beginning readers. Colorful cartoon characters query each other through dialogue in speech bubbles or across the top of the pages in an easy-to-read format. The jokes involve animals, mainly dogs. "What goes 'woof, woof, tick, tick'? A watchdog." Children will easily appreciate the humor, and the book would fit well into classroom collections.—Erlene Bishop Killeen, Stoughton Area School District, WI
