Synopsis

Survival of the Funniest by John Byrne

Survival of the Funniest combines a strong theme, with humour and advice - a formula which has proved so successful in John's previous books. This pocket-size book will help children see the funny side of their problems and challenges, whether they are exams and homework hassles, peer group pressure or full-on family feuds. While the jokes will cheer up any child, this little book will also contain practical advice on how to cope with worries and search out solutions. John's quirky child-friendly cartoons will accompany the jokes and tips.
