Genoa any new jokes?
Kids love jokes. And although there is no shortage of joke books on the market, there is always room for another.
Laugh-a-licious is a well organised collection, with the jokes arranged by themes and the knock-knocks presented in alphabetical order. Themes include school, animals, mealtimes and – a section which kids will love – gross jokes, presented in a chapter called Snot Funny.
Trewartha endeavours to present new jokes, rather than overdone ones which kids may already know. The design of the book, with a range of page backgrounds, cartoon-style illustrations at the beginning of each chapter and a good-sized font, makes it easy to browse and enjoy.
Laugh-a-licious will appeal to kids aged 8 to 12, and would be a good offering for a reluctant reader.
