What's a great way for children to begin learning grammar while having loads of fun? Playing "Mad Libs Junior! Featuring the same wacky sense of humor as our original "Mad Libs series, but tailored for the younger reader, we've designed these books to help teach some of the basics. Each puzzle includes four categories of words to choose from, indicated by a distinct symbol. Each symbol represents a part of speech and a list of words is offered. To play, kids are told the category from which to pick a word, including categories such as NOUNS, ADJECTIVES, VERBS and MISCELLANEOUS. "Mad Libs Junior is even designed for smaller hands, with a jumbo 7 1/2 x 10 3/8 inch trim size, a larger space to fill in the blanks for beginning writers, and 48 pages per book. Nobody knows silly better than we do. And with "Super Silly Mad Libs Junior, younger readers are introduced to the crazy world of Mad Libs.

About the Author
and Leonard Stern
created Mad Libs
in the 1950s and the series has been a favorite among kids of all ages ever since. Although Roger Price passed away in 1990, Leonard Stern keeps the tradition alive by writing new Mad Libs
all the time.
Roger Price and Leonard Stern are both well known for their comedy writing. In the 1950s Roger Price created and developed cartoons called Droodles, which were turned into a television show. Before that Price worked with Bob Hope on a newspaper humor column, and he even appeared on Broadway in Tickets, Please!
Leonard Stern has an equally colorful and varied history. Before co-founding Price Stern Sloan with Roger Price (Sloan came later), Stern was a successful television writer. In addition to his creative involvement with over twenty television series and over ten motion pictures, Stern worked with Jackie Gleason in New York writing the Honeymooners. He also wrote for the Phil Silvers Show, The Steve Allen Show, and wrote and produced the original Get Smart television series. Recently, Stern published A Martian Wouldn't Say That, which compiled weird and wacky memos written by people in the entertainment industry. Currently, Stern serves as a senior vice president of Price Stern Sloan, where he still writes those hilarious Mad Libs.
