The Daily Joker by Gareth P Jones & Rachel Delahaye
Not only does this joke book contain a quality joke (notice, I don’t specify whether high or low) for every day of the week.
Not only does it contain weekly challenges encouraging readers to pen their own hilarious comedy material, come up with catchphrases and become the funniest person on the planet.
Not only are there ‘on this day’ facts and famous birthdays.
Not only does it have illustrations by Beano-legend Nigel Parkinson.
Not only does it have all these things but… Actually, I think that is everything.
How to Get to School in Sixty Seconds, Treetops, Chucklers
Hector, his inventor mum and his little sister (along with her troupe of imaginary-friend monkeys) are always, always late for school despite only living half an hour away. But a challenge has been set – they have to make it to school in under one minute! Using lists, asides and notes, Hector chronicles his mum’s increasingly impossible attempts to get to school in sixty seconds.
