Three Stars.

Monkeyfarts!: Wacky Jokes Every Kid Should Know is a book that is just what the title suggests: a collection of jokes for kids. These jokes are geared towards kids in the elementary school age bracket, and are clean and family friendly. There's a nice variety of jokes here, ranging from knock knock jokes, puns, and funny short stories. As with any other joke book, this one is hit and miss. Some of them were hilarious (and I shockingly hadn't heard before) and others weren't funny at all (or I just didn't get). If you have a young child or are around young children a lot or even if you're a fan of jokes with an orange-you-glad-I-didn't-say-banana sense of humor, this book is definitely worth a skim.

Thanks so much to Quirk Books for my copy.
