Meet the Author

Roger Price and Leonard Stern created Mad Libs in the 1950s and the series has been a favorite among kids of all ages ever since. Although Roger Price passed away in 1990, Leonard Stern keeps the tradition alive by writing new Mad Libs all the time.

Roger Price and Leonard Stern are both well known for their comedy writing. In the 1950s Roger Price created and developed cartoons called Droodles, which were turned into a television show. Before that Price worked with Bob Hope on a newspaper humor column, and he even appeared on Broadway in Tickets, Please!
Leonard Stern has an equally colorful and varied history. Before co-founding Price Stern Sloan with Roger Price (Sloan came later), Stern was a successful television writer. In addition to his creative involvement with over twenty television series and over ten motion pictures, Stern worked with Jackie Gleason in New York writing the Honeymooners. He also wrote for the Phil Silvers Show, The Steve Allen Show, and wrote and produced the original Get Smart television series. Recently, Stern published A Martian Wouldn't Say That, which compiled weird and wacky memos written by people in the entertainment industry. Currently, Stern serves as a senior vice president of Price Stern Sloan, where he still writes those hilarious Mad Libs.

    Great educational tool!

    My kids grew up using Mad Libs to help them improve their reading and writing skills. They loved trying to make them as clever and funny as they could. As a teacher for students with autism and other learning disabilities, I have found that Mad Libs can be an entertaining way to teach language arts. This collection of Mad Libs over the years gives me numerous topics to choose from. If the lesson is about Science there are several Mad Libs that can be pulled from the book to not only learn about our topic of discussion, but, more importantly, learn the basic concepts of nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs. It is one of the few approaches to learning language that my students enjoy and seem to learn from. Having such a variety of Mad Lib stories in this book makes well worth the purchase. I look to add more books like this to my collection.

    Great value for the $$$

    My son really enjoy's doing Mad Libs, and this one is a really good value for the dollar. Quite a variety of ML's under the cover. There are some repeats from the smaller volumes - which is the point - so he's deliberately come up w/ different ML's.

    great for the car

    The mad libs book was fun for my 8 and 12 year old to do in the car. It is something we could all do together and it took thinking and creativity to come up with nouns, adjectives, verbs, etc. It was good practice for reading aloud for my 8 year old, too. I gave it 4 stars versus 5 as it lacks variety - can get a little repetitive in nature.

    Silly Stories

    My family and I use these when we go on long car rides. When we play Mad Libs we have one person to write the words down and everyone else takes turns giving the words. When we are done the one writing them down reads the story. They are always very funny.
