Children's Literature
The riddles, puns and jokes range from "Where do little dogs sleep on camp-outs? Answer—In pup tents" to Where do husky puppies like to sleep? Answer—On a sheet of ice under a blanket of snow." The riddles will make some kids think and undoubtedly make most of them smile. They are silly as are the illustrations, and just right for the target age group. A "Puffin Easy-to-Read" Level 3 book for grades 1-3. 2000 (orig. 1998), Puffin, $13.99, $13.89, $3.99. Ages 6 to 9. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3"What should you do if your puppy chews up your riddle book? Take the words right out of his mouth!" So ends another silly collection of riddles by Hall and Eisenberg. While most are perfect for primary-grade children's sense of humor, some are more easily understood than others. Vocabulary is relatively simple and fashioned into short, uncomplicated sentences that will keep youngsters turning the pages. The colorful cartoon illustrations done in pen and ink, colored pencils, and watercolors blend well with the loony riddles. Added bonuses are the expressive puppy faces and dialogue balloons.Christina Dorr, Calcium Primary School, NY
