Jokelopedia: The Biggest, Best, Silliest, Dumbest Joke Book Everby Ilana Weitzman
Synopses & Reviews
Kids and jokes, jokes and kids--it's a natural marriage. Now comes the mother of all joke books. Doctor jokes and elephant jokes, banana jokes, robber jokes, dentist jokes, light bulb jokes, chicken-crossing-the-road jokes, teacher jokes, computer jokes, movie star jokes, vampire jokes-they're all here, by the thousands, in a gut-busting, all-encompassing collection of more jokes than any kid could tell in a lifetime.
For the class clown and the family comedian and the shy kid who's looking to make new friends, Jokelopedia is the indispensable resource. There are the old classics and newfangled variations, and every shade of joke, pun and riddle in between, all organized by subject for easy reference. But Jokelopedia also takes it a step further. Included are tips on how to tell a joke (never laugh during the punch line); profiles of famously funny people, such as Jim Carrey, Eddie Murphy, and Lucille Ball; devilish practical jokes to hatch on friends, family, and, best of all, complete strangers; and descriptions of comedic styles and methods, including improvisation, impersonations, and slapstack.
For ages 7-12.
