KIRKUS REVIEW

Another collection of riddles/jokes by the author of 263 Brainbusters and How Do You Get a Horse Out of the Bathtub? Profound they're not, but they are noticeably more sophisticated than the usual standard--with the humor mostly derived either from genuinely clever wordplay (""If you don't pay your exorcist, it is very likely you will be repossessed"") or the sort of general knowledge that has lately been described as an endangered species (""Is it true that Cleopatra was famous for saying 'No'? Well, she was the Queen of Denial""), or both. But most of these will be accessible to the majority of kids, and they'll have the fun, of having their brains tickled while they laugh. Stevenson's occasional drawings of appropriately wide-eyed or bemused characters add to the fun.
