Just joking - over 300 jokes inside! by Dan McGuiness

Scholastic, 2013. ISBN: 9781742837352
(Age: 7-9) Jokes, Riddles, Puzzles
This joke book is suited to the home reader; each purchase supports the wonderful programs run by Camp Quality. The prologue honours the work done by this organisation and encourages us to remember that laughter is the best medicine.
For interest, the riddles and jokes are written in a multitude of fonts, styles and sizes placed in many different ways across the pages. Funny sketches add humour to the punchlines. What did one laptop say to the other laptop? Sorry you are not my type.
Puzzles, word-searches, cracking the code and mazes add to the fun. This book would be great for a present for a young reader from 7-9 years of age.
