Humour For Children Books

Barry Loser: My Dad is a Loser (The Barry Loser Series)

My Dad is a Loser is a madcap must-read for boys who love funny books such as Mr Gum and Wimpy Kid.

For all non-loserish dads and their sons. Read this little book to find out why I, Barry Loser, am definitely not at all loserish, even though my dad definitely is. Praise for my other book, I Am Not A Loser, which is about 8 million times longer than this one:

'Brilliant' - My mum.

'Amazing' - Also my mum

Jim Smith's hilarious illustrated books with their distinctive style and comedy genius make him (and Barry, of course) the coolest - or 'keelest' - new writer of books for kids who love to have fun when they read. Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid or David Walliams will love Barry Loser's stories. Jim is also the creator of Waldo Pancake.

The Mucky Princess: The Mucky Princess Series, Book 1

The Mucky Princess is the first in a series of children's books written as if a fairy story, but in a modern style. The stories are entertaining and humorous, touching on moral issues such as kindness, courage, and tolerance, but are in no way preachy or teachy.

The Princess lives in a beautiful palace and has everything she could possibly need. But the palace is rather boring, and she seeks mischief and adventure by hiding from the servants and getting as mucky as possible. One day she falls through a small door in the palace wall, meets a shepherd boy, and her adventures really begin!

A Bedtime Story With Added Buzz

This story is a little bit different from other stories. Usually stories are about other people but this story is about you. And usually stories are made up but this story is all true. It's about the amazing underwater adventure you had today with those bees.

I know what you're thinking: you're thinking: I didn't have an adventure with any bees today!

Oh yes you did! But you can't remember because that magic flower made you forget.

Let me explain ...

The Hilarious Adventures of Jass and Marble: The Case of the Missing Dog Bones: Volume 1 (The Hilarious Adventures of Jass and Marble Childrens books)

The Hilarious Adventures of Jass & Marble. Fully illustrated version. 3,500 words, no front or back matter filler. I know the kids hate filler! Lets see what kind of wacky adventure Jass & Marble gets themselves into this time! The stories of Jass & Marble are based off of my two crazy and lovable dogs, that my brother and I shared for years! Sadly both dogs have passed, but not after living a long fulfilling life as 2 of the best friends a person could have. Jass was a beautiful female German Shepard, who was actually very big for a female. She was over 100 lbs and a very athletic agile dog. She was one of the smartest dogs that I have ever seen. Actually, to be quite honest, at times I would look at her and wonder if she had a little human in her! My brothers and I actually had found her on a job site. We were working a job, as we had our own small construction business. She came wondering up to us, she was just weeks old at the time. She was crazier than an outhouse rat then, and she always stayed that crazy little puppy even when she was 12 years old! Marble was another beautiful dog. He was a dark brown brindle Pitt Bull Mastiff. I know what most people are thinking. They are thinking Pitt Bull! Oh no! They are killers! Well, that can't be further from the truth. It is all in who the owner is, and how they train them. Marble was a big boy, he was well over 120 lbs of solid muscle. He was dumber than a door knob! But he was a big old lovable, slobbery lug who loved to play fetch with a basketball, which he would always pop within just a few short seconds every time he had a brand new one to play with! The hilarious Adventures of Jass & Marble are funny children's books, and are geared towards children between the ages of 2 - 6. But I tried to make them in a way that would be enjoyable for the adults to read as well. I am a big kid myself, so I can relate to a 2 year old I suppose! I hope you all enjoy this funny short story book, and look out for more hilarious
