@ Your Library
by Beverly Ewart
Dear April 1,
No one is laughing. We feel it is inappropriate to send snow after such a long winter. Seriously.
Let us redirect you to some (actually FUNNY) humor to be found at the library. We have quite a collection of comics, comedy, humorous memoirs, and joke books for people of all ages. Check out our collections - maybe you will learn a GOOD joke.
Catwad: High five! By Jim Benton. This volume has more of Catwad, Blurmp, and their antics, including going on a vacation, getting sent back to school, entering a spelling bee, and more!
Alternative Zits by Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman. This volume follows sixteen-year old Jeremy Duncan as his parents, Connie and Walt, masterfully guide him through life's everyday challenges. This collection features all strips from Are We Out of the Driveway Yet? and Rude, Crude, and Tattooed.
Solutions and Other Problems by Allie Brosh. This follow-up to Hyperbole and a Half "includes humorous stories from [cartoonist] Allie Brosh's childhood; the adventures of her very bad animals; merciless dissection of her own character flaws; incisive essays on grief, loneliness, and powerlessness; [and] reflections on the absurdity of modern life"--Publisher
Silly Jokes for Silly Kids by Silly Willy. "Silly Jokes for Silly Kids is a children's joke book containing hundreds of funny kids' jokes with illustrations. The illustrations provide a visual aid to children who may become quickly tired of simply reading line after line. Kids will be laughing and sharing silly jokes with everyone in no time! Great for early readers! Be warned, some of these jokes are really, really, really silly. So silly, in fact, it is hard not to laugh!"--from the back cover.
Big Nate: Silent but Deadly by Lincoln Peirce. "Whether he's showing the ropes to a detention rookie, campaigning for the Student of the Month Award, or writing hilarious movie reviews for The Weekly Bugle, Nate Wright never fails to make his mark at P.S. 38. But middle school's no bed of roses. In fact, sometimes it just plain stinks. Just ask the Great Nose-ini! Nate's alter ego with a sense for scents can smell trouble a mile away... or at the very next desk. Was that you, Gina?"--from the Back cover.
