With plenty of knock-knock jokes, ""tongue tanglers,"" ""nifty Tom Swifties"" (a 1920s joke) plus poems by the likes of Jack Prelutsky and Ogden Nash, The Big Golden Book of Laughs: A Treasury of Poems, Jokes, Riddles, and Rhymes edited by Linda Williams Aber, illus. by Jerry Smath will keep children giggling. The amusing illustrations add to the fun. For example, in grand tradition, Lewis Carroll's ""Father William"" balances an eel on the end of his nose and, accompanying a limerick about ""a delicate girl named Louise,"" a humpback wearing a dainty pink hat and an apron sneezes, lifting a boat clear out of the water (she's ""a whale of a gal, if you please!"").
