Celebrating one of children's favourite forms of comedy, this series offers a wide array of animal-inspired amusement. Each book begins with a dictionary of jokes and riddles, highlighting dozens of different species in alphabetical order. The second part is arranged by classic clusters such as knock-knock jokes, rhymes, "daffynitions", and even jokes overheard in restaurants. From aardvarks and baboons to yaks and zebras, these entertaining compilations are also accompanied by a variety of engaging and humorous illustrations.
