The inside covers of a Golden Book are home to images of favorite characters from childhood stories. Readers will recognize pictures of The Saggy Baggy Elephant, Scuffy the Tugboat, the Pokey Little Puppy and the Little Engine that Could. These classics, like the gold foil binding that holds the books together, will never go out of style. Golden Books have grown to meet new demands of readers while maintaining an affordable price. Author Peggy Brown and artist David Sheldon aim to please readers in The Little Golden Book of Jokes and Riddles. This colorful book is filled to the brim with funny, witty, appropriate and laugh-out-loud jokes.

“What time is it when you need to see a dentist? Tooth-hurty.”

Brown covers a lot in this book. She indicates change in subject matter with a new heading (i.e. “Purrfectly Funny” and “Spooky and Kooky!”). Questions are printed in black while answers are printed in bright colors. Sheldon’s illustrations are just as hilarious as the jokes. His animal drawings and facial expressions highlight his talent. If you need a joke for the New Year or just for fun, you’ll find it here! Young readers, joke enthusiasts, Golden Book collectors and people who love to laugh will get a kick out of one of the newest additions to the Golden Book library.
