School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Q: What's better than a third grader who knows a new joke? A: A third grader who knows 560 new jokes. This series contains eight books, each of which has 23 pages of jokes, with one to six jokes per page. That's a lot of jokes, including puns ("What do bees chew? Bumblegum") gross jokes ("Two cannibals are eating a clown and one says, 'Does this taste funny to you?'"), and jokes so old they might predate recorded history ("What makes more noise than a dinosaur? Two dinosaurs.") In other words, there's something for everyone here. Six of these books are subject specific (e.g., School, Baseball), but two, Tongue Twisters and Knock-Knock Jokes, offer a veritable smorgasbord of these classic forms. A clean design that relies upon simple shapes, funky bright colors, and understated texture gives this series an up-to-date look, while abundant sharp, silly illustrations by veteran cartoonist Ostrom reinforce some of the more visual jokes.
Children's Literature
It doesn't matter how good you think you are, there is sure to be a tongue twister in this collection to foul up even the most articulate of speakers. Always a fun challenge, boredom buster and attention getter, tongue twisters are a perennial favorite with youngsters and a test of skill to the rest of us. This book offers a great selection filled with classics such as "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck" and "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers" and "A fly and a flea in a flue" along with silly lesser known twisters. The tongue twisters are presented on inviting, colorful pages with bold easy to read type. The pages are divided into subject areas such as animals, names, places and holidays. Each page includes vivid illustrations. This book will bring a smile to anyone's face. 2004, A Child's World, Ages 5 to 10.
