More Description

In addition to the jokes, cartoonist and artist Paul Brewer provides insights into what makes a joke funny, why we love to laugh and make others laugh, how to be more successful in doing that, and lots of great tips on how to remember jokes, how to tell them, and even how to invent your own. Each chapter ends with a half-joke, so that readers can test their growing skills by making up a punch line to fit the situation in the set-up of the joke. There's no right answer, so kids can challenge themselves and each other to write the funniest joke.
All of the classic joke formats are included, along with the author's suggestions for mastering each type. Sections are accompanied by full-page cartoons, and spot art throughout the book punctuates the jokes with visual humor. The 17 1/2 tips at the end of the book offer lots of help to the reader in developing confidence and a personal style of telling jokes, as well as nuts-and-bolts guidelines for writing funny jokes. The last ?1/2 tip? is an illustration for which the reader can write a punch line.
