cover image

Illus. by Jules Faber. Puffin Books, 2019. ISBN: 9781760893583.
(Age: 8-11) Recommended. Themes: Short stories; Humorous stories. This is a collection of funny stories that kids will enjoy. Filled with lame jokes, duck jokes, dad-dogs and fart stories and quirky and odd situations, there are many examples of kid-friendly humour, written mostly by well-known children's authors, plus one child author.
This is the type of book that kids enjoy for the awkward humour and because most of the stories require little or no reflective thought. However, if you want your 8-11 year old to read, then Total Quack Up Again will appeal.
With additional writing tips by Jacqueline Harvey for those who want to pursue their own story writing, this chapter creates opportunity for the development of reading and writing!
