HarperCollins, 2016. ISBN 9780062497918
(Age: 6+) Recommended. Jokes. Christmas. There are lots of laughs in this latest joke book from Rob Elliott. Kids will delight in the wacky humour - although adults may groan at some of the jokes. There are many of the favourite Knock Knock jokes that kids love eg.:
Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Muffin
Muffin who?
Naughty kids get muffin for Christmas

There are hundred of jokes that will delight children who love telling jokes to each other and adults. They will have lots of fun dipping into the book and finding their favourites and tricking friends and family. Here is another sample:
Why was the snowman so mean?
Because he was coldhearted.

Cute little illustrations are scattered throughout the book, which is a small paperback size, ideal for newly independent readers as well as older children.
This would be a great Christmas stocking filler or a fun book to have in the classroom to get a smile on children's faces during the countdown to Christmas.
