Laugh till you drop! This is a fantastic collection of thirty-nine humorous stories written by some of the best writers for children, from Roald Dahl to Jan Mark, as well as some writers perhaps better known to adult readers, such as Gerald Durrell, Isaac Bashevis Singer and Saki. Gathered from places as far-flung as Tunisia and Norway, Ireland and Pakistan, embracing many different strands of humour, and wittily illustrated, this is a great introduction to humorous writing. It is a genuinely rib-tickling collection to dip into time and again.
