I was brought up on these jokes, in the UK and abroad. They just can't die can they. They are old faithfuls (like the Tipperary joke) and addictive. They are what kids and adults pull out of the bag all the time on various occasions and for several reasons. The illustrations are unique. They are very different. I've only given 4 stars - but I'm an adult buying a kids book (because of all the children in the family) A child's review would be helpful. Nice bright front cover. Attracts the customer ~ All the best Mr. Riley !
