* My kids have recently really gotten interested in riddles and jokes. I saw this book at the library and thought they'd really enjoy it. It's part of the Puffin Easy-To-Read series but it's a Level 3. Some of the decoding and vocabulary was a little difficult for my 4 year old beginning reader. However, when my 6 year old daughter got ahold of this book she was very interested in reading it on her own and asking us the jokes. I have to say that the humor is definitely for older kids. A lot of the punchlines they just didn't understand (he hit a fowl ball, Cluck Kent, etc....). Even though it's in the Easy-To-Read series, I'd recommend the humor more to a 3rd grader +.
This book was borrowed from the library.
