The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Award 2016 - Best Book with Facts All the best people, says Andy Seed in the introduction to his book, play with words. The Silly Book of Weird and Wacky Words certainly proves how much fun wordplay can be. There are all sorts of examples of it here, from jokes, puns, and limericks to funny pleonasms, oxymorons and paraprosdokians*, as well as chapters on Spoonerisms, antique wit (Shakespeare, Socrates etc) and text speak. It’s really entertaining, and finishes with a collection of wacky wordplay games, just the thing for long journeys. ~ Andrea Reece
* A sentence or quote which takes you by surprise because of its unexpected ending, e.g. ‘I’ve had a wonderful evening, but this wasn’t it.’ Groucho Marx

Do you know what 'park your jam on the frog' means? Fancy some ognib? What rhymes with 'circus'? plus many more amazing things you never knew about words.
Have hours of fun wixing up your murds with this hilarious book, packed full of rhymes, puns, games, jokes, gibberish and more.
