The knock-knock joke- a kid classic. So many funny, punny punchlines. It was just screaming for its own book. To do this classic joke justice, we decided to gather fourteen of the best-known and most talented children's book artists to illustrate their favourite punchlines. The results are wacky, zany, and absolutely hilarious.

If you knock on Tomie dePaola's door, beware! Is that a girl or a gorilla? Who's knocking at Saxton Freymann's door? Just a couple of talking lettuces. Talking lettuces?! One impatient cow can hardly wait to get through Laurie Keller's door, and David Small has a surprise waiting for his intruding vampire.

In this collection, you'll recognize some of your favourite jokes and be surprised by new ones. But one thing is certain- Each time there's a knock, you'll want to answer the door!

I've never met a kid who didn't like knock knock jokes and this book is no exception.

As a bonus, I have found knock knock jokes can be a helpful way of explaining to children where to put quotation marks in their writing.

Excellent collection of silly, lame and funny Knock! Knock! jokes. This is a fun one to share with pre-schoolers and primary students because they are so into this form of humour.
