Dogs Don't Tell Jokes

Dogs Don't Tell Jokes by Louis Sachar

Gary Boone has known all his life that he is going to be a comedian when he grows up. So when his school decides to have a talent show, he thinks its his turn to shine. But as the date of the show becomes closer, Gary starts to wonder if he is funny any more.

This book will have you in hysterics. Even the bad jokes are good. As expected from a Louis Sachar book, it is wonderfully written. It is set in the same world as as Someday Angeline, with the same characters. It really proves that you can never be too old for a kids book.

I am going to give it an 8/10
and an age rating of 8+
