K-Gr 3—In this campy collection of silly jokes, Yoe, former creative director for the Muppets, uses wordplay in a question-and-answer format. The chapters cover broad categories, including animals, school, ghouls, and food; there's also a final section of catchall riddles. While some jokes are groan-inducing, and others may seem familiar ("What did the tree say to the bird?" "Leaf me alone."), readers will appreciate the light approach to the topic. Black-and-white cartoon drawings interspersed throughout highlight certain one-liners and add to the jovial, almost slapstick comedy (with very few potty jokes). The illustrations have a retro feel that harkens back to an earlier cartoon era, but readers will find the content current and snappy. A few jokes pop up more than once ("What kind of soup do dogs like?" "Chicken poodle!" appears three times), or perhaps this is an Easter egg or a running gag. In any case, the book could be used in a classroom setting as a tool to illustrate homophones, but ultimately kids will have fun just reading the lines to one another. VERDICT A possible purchase for collections where there are fans of classic punny witticisms.—Eva Thaler-Sroussi, Glencoe Public Library, IL
