How To Be A Comedy Genius, by Pete Johnson and friends

How To Be A Comedy Genius is packed full of jokes for 7-12 year olds. The book is divided into different subject areas including Silly School, Funny Food and Christmas Crackers.
The jokes have been collected from school children and their names are listed at the end. A donation is made by the publisher to a children’s mental health charity for every copy sold.
All kids go through the non funny joke phase where they end up saying nonsense and laugh hysterically (Zach is there at the moment!) This book will help them to find some proper jokes! A relief for bewildered parents like me 🙂
My kids loved reading this book, finding classics as well as modern references. They kept reading the jokes out that they found funniest which seemed to be all of them!
How To Be A Comedy Genius is full of fun, suitable for the whole family, and supports a great charity. Fab!

  1. This sounds like such a good book and especially because by buying it you’ll support a children’s mental health charity. I remember being in the nonsense phase for so long and also repeating words and phrases a lot that I’d heard (I’m autistic so this may be one reason, though I guess all children do it at times). Thanks for sharing this. #DreamTeam
