The Laugh Stand: Adventures in Humor

Humor is on sale at The Laugh Stand, so step up and pick out the laugh of your choice. From Tom Swifties—“‘These are my underpants,’ Tom said briefly.”—to daffinitions—“Benign: What you are after you be eight.”—to pangrams, anagrams, and even word diagrams, readers will chuckle their way through this adventure in humor.


“This team marries humor with sublime learning. Teachers will find great beginnings for lesson plans here.” (School Library Journal)

“Cleary presents a wide variety of language humor, ranging from anagrams and Tom Swifties to cartoons and mathematical poems.” (The Horn Book Guide)
