AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'If you think you've heard every funny story there is, then think again. Funny Bones is a super-huge collection of silly stories, hilarious one-liners, rib-tickling jokes, wise-cracking cartoons and much, much more that's bound to get even the most serious kid laughing. With over 100 funny stories, hilarious poems and sidesplitting drawings from some of Australia's favourite and funniest people including Zoë Foster Blake, Josh Pyke, Andy Griffiths, Terry Denton, Hannah Gadsby, Lawrence Leung, Michelle Law, Adrian Beck, Katrina Nannestad, James O'Loghlin, Tom Jellett, Gus Gordon, Danny Katz, Mitch Vane, Sally Rippin, Tristan Bancks, Jessica Walton, Dougal Macpherson, Garth Nix, The Listies, Georgia Productions as well as Oliver Phommavanh and Kate & Jol Temple, Funny Bones will be a bumper addition to any child's bookshelf. It might get you laughing out loud, but it's all for a serious cause—all royalties go to the international aid charity, War Child Australia.'
