School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-3-These collections of riddles and jokes include such groaners as: "First Monster: `I'm on a seafood diet.' Second Monster: `What do you eat?' First Monster: `Whatever I see!'" The first book includes the obvious: jokes about Santa, ghosts, and turkeys, with no particular order or arrangement. Level of sophistication varies, from "What do you call a hungry dachshund in October? A hollow-weenie" to "Where do you go to celebrate Election Day? Political Parties." These titles are average fare-neither better nor worse than most joke books in your collections. One vibrantly colored cartoon appears on every other page.
