We all know that Scooby-Doo is an animated character who makes funny remarks every now and then, especially when his friends are trying to solve a mystery. However, there is another side of Scooby-Doo and gang that is presented in Scooby-Doo: Animal Jokes, where they make fun of everything related to animals. Yes, Scooby-Doo is also an animal but an observant one, and you will become a fan of his observations once through this Joke-a-thon!

Unlike the many books that have lengthy jokes that are sometimes irrelevant, this book features the best jokes created by Michael Dahl and Scott Jeralds. Here, every joke is short, sweet and laughable, catering to every animal from cows, tigers, lions to dogs, cats and camels, to name a few.

Don’t be surprised if you don’t get the joke at the first attempt, you have to be in the moo-d for that. After all, these jokes have been written for youngsters, keeping those in mind who are willing to give their brains an exercise first, and their laughing cells later.

Everyone has heard the joke about the chicken crossing the road, but did you know why chicken farmers do so well at school? Or where do bunnies go if they are sick? Or the one that tells you cat lovers’ favourite holiday spot? I doubt that you know what the mother worm said to her son when he came home late?

Thanks to this book, you now have the answers and they are worth quoting in front of friends. Chicken farmers do so well at school because ‘They are always egg-selling’, bunnies visit ‘The hop-ital’ when sick, cat lovers go on holiday to ‘Purrrrrr-u’ and mother worm asked her son ‘where in earth have you been?’ on his late return. Get the drift? Because if you do, then this book is for you!

This book has chapters that will help your funny bone excel; there is an entire chapter on ‘How to tell jokes’ that discusses the dos and don’ts of delivering a joke. Then there is a Joke dictionary that explains the meaning of words that you might not have ‘herd’ before. With top-class illustrations featuring Fred, Velma, Shaggy, Daphne and of course Scooby-Doo, you have a book at hand that can lighten the mood of your friends, family and make you understand the basics of telling a joke, the way it is meant to be told.
