Gr 2-5- What child doesn't love a knock-knock joke? Tell one to a group and the audience will respond with more. Share some of the jokes from this collection and your patrons will be clamoring to check out this sequel. The book follows the same format as the earlier title (Cricket, 2003) with all-new material under 15 thematic headings. Riddles at the end of each chapter encourage original answers, which is one thrust of the book-getting kids to make up their own jokes. An introduction plus the "11 ½ Tips" will inspire readers to look at everyday events with an eye for humor and offer some suggestions on keeping children's attention, jokes to avoid, stage fright, and more. Black-and-white drawings introduce each chapter and spot art is sprinkled throughout the book. Most collections should make room for this one.-Carol S.
