Gr 2-4-- A delicious collection of jokes and riddles about many types of foods. Some will tempt a sweet tooth; others will satisfy a snack lover. There are plenty of fruity riddles. The seafood jokes could make a shark grin, and the vegetable riddles for Halloween could put a grin on any ghoul. The authors also include foodles: cartoons of foods that readers must identify. Several riddles printed in green ink are placed on each page; unfortunately, the answers appear directly below. Humorous black, white, and green illustrations accompany the text. A fun way to get students thinking about the different food groups. --Cassie Whetstone, Ridgeley Primary/Middle School, WV

The references are contemporary--from computers and microwaves to bagels and egg rolls--in these delicious and messy food riddles. The puns and wordplay will have wide appeal, and the wit and slapstick will entice new readers to think about sound and meaning. Whiting's cartoon drawings on each page extend the physical mayhem. There are some good ones here: "Why shouldn't you tell jokes in the kitchen? Because the dishes might crack up," or, "What happened to the vegetables in the monster's garden? They all grue-some." You can tell the jokes are good because the fun is as much in the telling as in the payoff: "What kind of cookies do computers like?"
