That's Not Funny!

Written by Jeanne Willis

Illustrated by Adrian Reynolds

That's Not Funny! Synopsis

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.

That's Not Funny! Press Reviews

Adrian Reynolds' animated African animals are big, bold and brightly executed adding to the fun. -- Jill Bennett * Books for Keeps * Beautifully written text perfectly partnered with glorious, colourful animals...full of action and fun. * The School Librarian * From the eye-catching cover on, this book does not disappoint. Great fun! * 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 *
