    Hilarious puns and riddles will get students laughing

    In the Big Inning by Mike Thayer & Jared Lee is a hilarious book of silly riddles and puns about the Bible. First Mia's review: I liked this book because sometimes it made me laugh, but I didn't understand a lot of the jokes. My favorite one was: What kingdom in the Bible made the best sandwiches: Ba-baloney-a! I liked the pictures, and my favorite ones were the proph-sea, the mini-stir, and Son-rise. It made me want to learn more about the Bible stories so that I can get the jokes better. Now my review: As an adult, I thought the jokes, which are mostly word plays, were hilarious, but I often had to explain many of them to Mia, so I wouldn't recommend this to kids seven or under. Most of them will go right over their heads. However, this is a perfect book to get a laugh from older kids, especially for breaking the ice with junior high students. The illustrations add to the humor, and even when Mia didn't get the jokes, she enjoyed looking at the pictures. I plan on using these jokes to torture friends and family often!

    Funny jokes related to Bible stories

    Are you familiar with the "Black Lagoon" series? This book is in a series called Tales from the Back Pew by the same author.
    One of the riddles:
    How do you know God is a baseball fan? Because he starts
    off the Bible "In the Big Inning ."

    There are several riddles on each page along with silly cartoon illustrations. The jokes cover things from both the Old and New Testaments.I think this would be a book enjoyed by elementary aged boys. The jokes will be funny for those who have some Bible background. Otherwise they probably won't make sense. Several of them did make me laugh though. If you are a fan of the Black Lagoon series I would recommend that you check out this series also.

    Thank you to Zondervan for sending me a review copy of this book.

    I Also Recommend:

    Good Clean Fun!

    This is a fun Bible joke book that is not blasphemous. Mike Thaler's sharp wit and wordsmithing help make this book a safe, clean, and humorous read for kids. Some joke in the book make you want to even open your Bible and read the source material again!
    Jared Lee's illustrations capture the fun of the jokes and fun for the kids to look at. He has a good Sunday morning comic style that is easily recognizable.
    Although this book is meant for kids, I spent a lot of time telling some of these jokes to the adult's at church.
