The Lovereading4Kids comment
5-7 years. This entertaining and nicely-told easy reader tells the story of the joke machine which Jeffrey discovers hidden away in Mr Prendergast’s junk shop where he works on a Saturday morning. Broken when he finds it, Jeffrey is determined to make it work again and soon it is turning out jokes, much to the delight of everyone. Everyone, that is, except the gloomy Mr Jenkinson. How Jeffrey gets the last laugh is wholly satisfying. (7+)
The Joke Machine by Alexander Mccall Smith
Another story about a wonderful wacky machine and the magic, the fun and a little bit of mayhem it brings, from the brilliant Alexander McCall Smith
Jeffrey spends his Saturdays working in Mr Prendergast’s junk shop. One day, while they are sorting things out, they uncover a mysterious machine. Jeffrey takes it home to see if he can make it work. It turns out to be a joke-producing machine, and an extremely funny one at that! Soon everyone in town wants one of its jokes. Everyone except Mr Jenkinson, that is, the miserable owner of the shop next door.
Of course, what Mr Jenkinson really needs to do is get a sense of humour instead of trying to ruin everyone’s fun. But who will get the last laugh?
