“A ghost’s sheets would soon shrink in such suds.” Kids will love challenging themselves and their friends to pronounce the tricky phrases that fill this appealing volume. The dozens of tongue twisters vary in length and complexity, from a two-word phrase to a seven-line paragraph. Bright, cartoon-style illustrations add to the fun and relate to the text. “A bloke’s back bike brake block broke,” for example, is accompanied by a picture of a racer kneeling next to his bike with a toolbox. The book is divided into nine topics—including animals, holidays, and school—and each tongue twister is contained in its own colored box, making it easy to find favorite sayings again and again.

Series Review
What’s better than a third grader who knows a new joke? A: A third grader who knows 560 new jokes. This series contains eight books, each of which has 23 pages of jokes, with one to six jokes per page. That’s a lot of jokes, including puns (“What do bees chew? Bumblegum”) gross jokes (“Two cannibals are eating a clown and one says, ‘Does this taste funny to you?’”), and jokes so old they might predate recorded history (“What makes more noise than a dinosaur? Two dinosaurs.”) In other words, there’s something for everyone here. Six of these books are subject specific (e.g., School, Baseball), but two, Tongue Twisters and Knock-Knock Jokes, offer a veritable smorgasbord of these classic forms. A clean design that relies upon simple shapes, funky bright colors, and understated texture gives this series an up-to-date look, while abundant sharp, silly illustrations by veteran cartoonist Ostrom reinforce some of the more visual jokes.
