What's black and white and read all over? It's a cool new book from Owl, that's what! Ha! Ha! Ha! is an absolute treasure trove of choice jokes, intriguing puzzles, challenging riddles, brain teasers, word games and amazing facts. Ranging in complexity from simple knock-knock jokes to dazzling brain bogglers and optical illusions, Ha! Ha! Ha! is an astounding collection of funnies and facts for kids of all ages.

Organized thematically, each page is guaranteed fun with heaps of hugely entertaining things that make you say "ha, ha" and "hmmm" and "hey, did you hear this one?"

You'll pick up jokes about your favorite ghouls -- vampires, ghosts, monsters and skeletons -- give your eyeballs a workout with optical illusions, test yourself by guessing well-known expressions with whimsical illustrations as your only clue and get down on the farm with hilarious chicken, cow, horse and pig jokes!

Ha! Ha! Ha! is a chunky 128-page package with a bold eye-catching cover. Inside, wonderful amusements are paired with a plenitude of ingenious and lighthearted fact sidebars related to the jokes. For instance, not only will you learn why elephants are wrinkled (Would you like to try to iron one?) but you will find out how elephants use their ears to keep cool in the African sun. Dianne Eastman's illustrations add whimsy and wit to this rich feast of entertainment and enlightenment for young readers.
