About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Tom Swifties.

Description:

48 pages. Inspired by the frequent use of adverbs in the Tom Swift books, these humorously illustrated plays-on-words make puns between what is said and how it is said. I'll see if I can dig it up for you, said Tom gravely. Etc. First edition (first printing stated). Very good in wrappers (paperback), with the price inked out on the cover. Very scarce in the first, self-published, version, and with somewhat different content than the Grosset and Dunlap version. For example, in this original, Tom dryly accepts a martini; in the later version he refuses one the same way. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Time Inc., 1963. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Vol. LXXXI, No. 22. Mailing label on cover; a little light rubbing to edges. "The May 31, 1963 edition of TIME Magazine greatly abetted the spread of 'Tom Swifties," a form of Wellerism. TIME, which announced its own Tom Swifty contest in that issue, caused the popularity of Tom Swifties to grow, for a period of some years. Tom Swifties found a large teenage audience on the joke column on the last page of each month's issue of Boys' Life, the magazine for Boy Scouts.". Bookseller Inventory # 720130211
