Reading is Funny! Comments Off on Reading is Funny!

Posted on March 30, 2016 by Fancy Dress Ball


This Friday is Reading is Funny Day – a day to convince children – and adults – that reading can be just as entertaining as TV or video games. Perhaps even more so! To celebrate, here are our top five funny children’s books…

1. The Book with No Pictures – this book has (surprisingly) no pictures. Instead, the idea is that the reader must read out every word in the book… even if the words say BLORK or MY HEAD IS MADE OF BLUEBERRY PIZZA! A fantastic read for people of all ages – especially those who like to make funny noises or speak in a funny voice.

2. Fox in Socks – Everyone loves Dr Seuss, and we could have chosen any of his books to add to this list – but there’s just something hilarious about reading Fox in Socks out loud. It’s filled with delightfully ridiculous and convoluted tongue twisters that you’re guaranteed to stumble over. And everyone knows the fun is in the stumbling!

3. Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus – The bus driver is taking a break, and he’s leaving you in charge of the bus. The one rule? Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus! But the pigeon has big dreams of becoming a bus driver… can he convince you to le thim drive the bus?

4. Silly Verse for Kids by Spike Milligan – Never underestimate the power of Spike Milligan to bring audiences of all ages to their knees with giggles. If you don’t still smirk when you hear the words on the Ning Nang Nong… there’s something very wrong with you.

5. The Twits – We could have chosen any of Roald Dahl’s books, couldn’t we! If they were submitted to a publisher today, how many of his books would actually be accepted? Dahl’s books are actually incredibly dark, and The Twits is no exception – but the characters are also delightfully disgusting, and children love disgusting don’t they!
