School Library Journalea. vol: illus. by Joan Hanson. unpaged. (Make Me Laugh Series). CIP. Lerner. 1986. PLB $5.95. Gr 2-4 While the subtitle states that these are books of jokes, each volume actually contains riddles, each on a single topicholidays, doctors, and bugs. While some of the riddles are old and predictable, others are new and fresh. Some pages contain several riddles and answers; others have a single riddle and its answer with a corresponding drawing. Unfortunately, readers cannot attempt to solve the riddles, because answers appear immediately after the question. However, most students, especially brighter ones, will delight in the imaginative wordplay. Susan Williamson, Saltsburg Junior/Senior High School, Pa.
