Punch Lines: "Humerus" Art , by George Wachob, is my 'under 100 pages' choice for my 2016 (Blended) Reading Challenge.


Punch Lines


I received a complimentary copy through Goodreads Giveaways in exchange for an honest review.

I so wanted to love this book. I'm a cornball through and through. Nothing makes me happier than a fantastic pun.

As you can see from my one star review, I just don't feel this book qualifies. They were “groan-worthy” as promised, but not in a groan-so-good kinda way.

Most of these made no sense, or I would have given at least one more star for effort. Or perhaps if the illustrations had been better (very clip-arty). Many of these made no sense even with the answer key, and far too many were a stretch to fit rather than an actual pun -- either the answer or the picture chosen to represent it. The ones I did get were the obvious ones. And, as mentioned, I'm really into puns.

I'll give this to my pun-loving daughter and see if she feels differently, but I was, sadly, underwhelmed.

Edited to add: My 13 yo loved it, so it was a winner there.
