My father bought this book for my brother and I when I was about 4 years old. 20 years later I still crack up from the jokes! A childhood staple, I think the word plays, cheese-tastic jokes, and early knock-knock gags influenced my choice in career (I'm a speech and language therapist). I love how children get the idea behind 'Opening Line'... 'Reply'... 'Punch Line' and then take off, making up some of the most ridiculous and nonsensical 'jokes' (the refinement of that particular skill comes later!!).

I would recommend it for any child, of any age.
