Knock, Knock! Who's There?
My First Book of Knock-Knock Jokes
Written and Illustrated by Tad Hills
Knock, Knock? Who's There? Olive? Olive Who? Olive this book! (I love-get it?) Do you have some small fry comedians around your house? My five year son old started a sudden career in joke telling. They never made any sense to me and to tell the truth I didn't always "get" them. Have you ever felt this way? Well, needless to say I bought this book to teach my son the importance of a great punch line and one that made sense. This is a great First Joke Book.
The ten Knock, Knock jokes are made out of names like Olive, Ken, Anita, Duane, Sue, Sid, Luke, Wayne, Liz and Les. For example, Knock, Knock. Who's there? Sid. Sid who? Sid down, you're rocking the boat! The humor is simple and yet so funny. These jokes are a great example for are young jokesters to emulate.
Tad Hills has humorlessly written (sorry-I had to say it this way) and wonderfully animated this book. The drawings are simple, colorful, very cute and to the point…….of being funny that is! Each joke takes up two pages. The Knock, Knock joke is on one page and the blank Who? is cleverly placed on the adjacent page with the "Who?" written on a pull back flap that opens to reveal the punch line. Pull back the flap and watch the laughter appear on that tiny face.
I recommend this book for infants to age six and anyone who just loves to hear children snicker, snort and giggle!
