Synopsis

Animal Cracker Uppers Jr by Richard Lederer, Jim Ertner

Celebrating one of children's favorite forms of comedy, this witty wordplay collection provides a lively array of animal-inspired amusement. Beginning with a dictionary of jokes and riddles, dozens of different species are highlighted in alphabetical order. The subsequent section is arranged by classic clusters from knock-knock jokes and rhymes to quips overheard in a restaurant. Mixing vocabulary-enhancing humor with fun-filled facts about the animal kingdom, young readers will delight at zany, zoological insights coupled with engaging illustrations.
