Cleverly organized into 15 thematic spreads, this serves up a mind-boggling number of puns and riddles about animals. In the first scene, "Pre-Hysterical Times," dinosaur jokes range from real groaners ("BONE appetit!" ) to the respectably witty ("Which dinosaur had the largest vocabulary? The thesaurus" ). Each scene's jokes and illustrations revolve around some type of creature--monkeys, fleas, spiders--and young jokesters should pick up quite a bit of information amid giggles. Impressive in their busyness, if not their beauty, brightly colored illustrations provide solid visual support for the brain-teasing text. For larger collections.
