Children's LiteratureThe perfect book for the kid who loves to tell corny jokes, this one contains 23 pages of jokes. One in a series of eight joke books by a publisher that maintains a website "to provide the silliest information available," this edition focuses on monster jokes. Every other page contains a cartoon-like illustration of a joke with a question at the top and answer at the bottom, upside-down, of course. The remaining pages contain four additional jokes, text only, with the answers printed in a contrasting color, upside down. Supposedly, kids who are into these jokes won't mind having to flip the book round and round to learn the answers. 2004, ABDO Publishing Co, Ages 6 to 9.
