If you think you've heard every funny story there is then think again … Funny Bones is a super-huge collection of rib-tickling stories, cartoons, comics, jokes and much, much more that's bound to get even the most serious kid laughing.
With over 100 funny stories, hilarious poems and side-splitting drawings from some of Australia's favourite and funniest people including Zoe 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.
Kate and Jol Temple write funny books for kids. Their award-winning book Captain Jimmy Cook Discovers Third Grade was selected as a CBCA Honour Book and inspired the ridiculous spin-off, Yours Troolie, Alice Toolie. Kate and Jol are ambassadors for Raising Literacy Australia. Oliver Phommavanh loves to make people laugh on stage as a comedian, and on the page as a children's author of books such as Thai-riffic!, Con-nerd and Natural Born Loser.
