Children's Literature"Why did the escargot visit the manicure salon? She needed to get her snails done." Some children never seem to get enough of riddles and this book can help joke-lovers add to their repertoire. Divided into such chapters as "Old MacDonald Had a . . .", "Bringin' Home the Bacon" and "What's Up, Doc?", this pun-filled list of child-friendly riddles will amuse middle elementary students. End matter includes a "Try It Yourself!" page giving instructions to help children invent their own riddles, paragraphs about the author and illustrator, and a glossary designed to help the reader quickly find a favorite joke. Humorous black-and-white illustrations accompany the text. Kids who love riddles will love this book—kids who don't love riddles will find it easy to skim. This book is suitable for supplementing the humor collection of an elementary school library or classroom, but might not be a first choice if funds are limited. 2003, Sterling Publishing Co, Ages 7 to 10.
