In all honesty I've never reviewed a joke book before - it's not something I usually read, though I do like a good joke. Horrid Henry's Jumbo Joke Book is sure to delight any fans of the naughty youngster, and I must say that I did indeed laugh my way through all 294 pages of this selection of Henry's best jests.

This book contains three Horrid Henry joke books that have been published over the last few years, together for the first time in one handy volume. Horrid Henry's Hilariously Horrid Joke Book, Horrid Henry's Purple Hand Gang Joke Book and Horrid Henry's All Time Favourite Joke Book are all featured here, and all contain absolutely loads of clever, clean jokes. Perfect!

Q. Which ghost stops goals?
A. A ghoulkeeper.

This is just one of Henry's jokes that you'll find within this book, and there are plenty more where that came from. Anyone who loves jokes will find something to laugh at in Horrid Henry's Jumbo Joke Book, and I can see it being a hit with 5+ readers everywhere. In fact, it's great fun for all the family!
