Content

Following her good-times-for-all, smash-hit Boredom Blasters, Helaine Becker serves up another barrel of laughs in this book for now and future jokesters. 
Young readers learn how to prepare a comedy routine and how to draw their own comic strips.
They discover what separates a good clown from a stupendous one, and how to perform clown routines like juggling and pratfalls.
Tasty recipes, hilariously inspired crafts, crazy jokes, fascinating facts, and giggle-inducing activities complement each chapter.
Examples include whipping up a batch of Earthworms and Dirt Cups for dinner, creating slapstick sound effects with a pair of vinyl gloves, and livening up a party with a Very Silly Walk-a-Thon.
Claudia Dávila’s whimsical full-color art adds to the fun.
