Synopsis

That's Not Funny! by Jeanne Willis

One day, just for a joke, Hyena puts a banana skin on Giraffe's path. When Giraffe slips and collides with a tree, a chain of unfortunate events begins which involves all the other animals. Hyena laughs and laughs at their misfortune. But the other animals have the last laugh when Hyena gets a fitting comeuppance and trips up on his own joke.

Parents In Touch Big bright pictures mirror the text, climaxing with an evening silhouette when Hyena gets his just deserts. Red House Children's Book Award
