What a Joke: The Puffin Book of Kids' Jokes by Phillip Adams and Patrice Newell

This really is a book of kids' jokes. Hundreds of children across Australia contributed to this collection. Teachers asked children to write down their favourite jokes and the best were compiled into this book. The jokes, riddles, knock knocks and cartoons are organised into the following chapters:

Animal Antics
School Daze
Farmyard Funnies
Ghoulish Gags
Ridiculous Riddles
Knock Knock
Jungle Madness
Sick, Sick, Sick
Grub's Up
Crazy Families
Bush Giggles
Totally Dumb Jokes

A couple of my favourites are:
"I just ran into a great big bear!"
"Did you let him have both barrels?"
"Heavens no, I let him have the whole gun."

What do you get if you sit under a cow?
A pat on the head.

This is probably one of the funniest joke books on our shelves in The Little Library of Rescued Books and it is well worth picking up. Terry Denton fans will be pleased to know he did the illustrations for this book and they are up to their usual quirky standard.
