Carbone, Courtney The Angry Birds Movie: Laughtastic Joke Book, 144 pgs. HarperFestival, 2016. $5.99 Content: G.
This book is full of jokes that play on words. The characters from the Angry Birds movie are illustrated throughout, but you don’t have to have seen the movie to understand the jokes. There are 5-6 jokes per page spread and the jokes ask a question and then have a word play answer.
My 1st grader thinks joke books are the best, so he is a big fan and the allure of the Angry Birds helps grab his attention even though not all the jokes are based on the angry birds. The illustrations are in black and white, not colored. This book will get a lot of use and the price is great.
EL(K-3) – ADVISABLE. Reviewer, C. Peterson.
