Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Laughing Matters from School Library Journal on October 1, 2004

These books include some traditional jokes along with a lot of cleverly though-out new ones. Any dinosaur lover will get a kick out of the play on words in the first title: ‘What did the dinosaur call her shirt-making business? Try Sarah’s Tops.’ In Knock-Knock, the material is arranged alphabetically, with four or more jokes for each letter. ‘Knock, Knock. Who’s There? Quack. Quack who? Quack another bad joke and I’m leaving!’ But Tongue Twisters should be read out loud. Selections include ‘A big black bug bit a big black bear, made the big black bear bleed blood’ and ‘Does double bubble gum double bubble?’ With some practice, children can impress their friends with their tongue-twisting skills. All three books have colorful cartoons that clarify the jokes. These titles are not only funny, but they also reinforce language skills painlessly.
