It's as common a developmental stage as the Batman cape and the insistence on a PBJ sandwich for every meal. Once kids hear their first silly riddle, you can count on hearing one after another (or more likely, the same one over and over) for the next few months (or years). Luckily, Mike Downs and David Sheldon's giggle-packed collection of rhyming animal riddles will add some variety to the budding comedian's repertoire: "What does an octopus like to sip?" Can't guess? Ink drink, of course. "What would a mallard drive around town?" A duck truck, naturally. Getting the picture? Try this one: "What do you call a well-mannered insect that eats houses?" Yup. A polite termite. Kids will love the easy-to-read, fun-to-guess jokes (turn the page for the answers) and Sheldon's hint-filled, digitally-reworked illustrations with their captivatingly contemporary yet retro look. And they sure beat knock-knock jokes! (Ages 3 to 6) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
