    As we grow up we have a variety of books to read for both young and old but when we were children or older which children's books do you find the most funniest?

    Mine would be Captain Underpants. That's one book series that had me laughing my head off over. The drawings and writing alone is creative,charming and downright hilarious to boot! :lolol 

    There's also a series adaptation of the board game Clue as well. That too has some pretty funny moments. :lol

    I've been reading his work since I was about eleven. Of coarse, considering the fact that I'm only fourteen now, I suppose that's not a particularly long time.

    If your parents didn't read you "The monster at the end of the book" they should be locked away for life. I loved that book as a kid. We got it for our kids and Gabriel told me after page three the monster was Grover. Bastard.

    The first part was sarcasm. The second was all serious.

    So.....you don't believe me, and I'm okay with me. It's a rarity that someone believes me.



    Then you make a joke about my testicles. What did I do to you? Do you just hate people you don't believe?

    My favorite book growing up was the Historian. That made me laugh my ass off towards the end. Which (Spoiler Alert) Dracula kidnapped people to maintain his library. Stephen King's Firestarter, Silver Bullet and it is also cool to read. I also read alot of Sci Fi books when I was younger as well as alot of Mythology books, horror books, and Fantasy

    Gong to show my age a bit here but Encyclopedia Brown. While most were not "that" funny there were a few that made me laugh out loud back in the day.

    Morbid anyway. :D 

    You must have grown up in a house where people read a lot. This sort of thing tends to happen when kids read early and books are left unattended. I can attest to this directly, having stumbled into "The Dunwich Horror" at the age of six, or so. I hid the fearsome thing (the collection had a spooky distorted face on the cover) and sneaked off to read it whenever I could, until it was all done. :D  It was that paperback Eleven Great Horror Stories collection.

    Dante's descriptions are dense and graphic enough that I could see a small child who could read enough for comprehension being drawn in, particularly with a horrifying illustration or two thrown into the mix. :D 

    Now, on a more age-appropriate note, we had this awesome book called Who Will Comfort Toffle, featuring Tove Jansson's Moomins. My sister bought a copy recently for us, and I read it to my kids. :) 

    We also had this incredibly stoned children's book called Everything Under a Mushroom. Anybody familiar with that one? It was possibly more trippy than 70s Sesame Street.

    Yeah. My famliy were heavy readers....and it was on the bottom self of the book case. So...I just grabbed that huge ass book and just started to read. It's extremely hard to describe....it's so horrifying(and gave me nightmares for almost a year.) but I just couldn't put it down. You can even spend months just talking to someone about all the different "levels of hells", it's extremely dark veiws, among other things about it.



    I also know about Everything Under a Mushroom. That's just a trip.

    I liked The Mouse and the Motorcycle and My Father's Dragon Trilogy as a kid.

    Don't recall how funny they were, but they were some of the most memorable to me from my early-Elementary years.

    I like "Go The F*ck to Sleep" which is a adult book done in the likeness of a childrens book.
