Reviews - What do customers think about The Ants Are My Friends: A Punderful Celebration of Song?
A pun too far Jul 24, 2008
I love Richard Lederer's books, but this is a real groaner. I would recommend it only to diehard punsters, and even then, with serious reservations
I love a good pun, but this book doesn't supply the goods for me.
Musical Fun Feb 25, 2008
This is a delightfully funny and clever book from punster Stan Kegel and word maven Richard Lederer. Using lyrics from Broadway shows and popular songs they've written jokes, puns and groaners, some original and others free floating oldies, and created musical punchlines by altering letters or words. This book is a double delight, bringing to readers both the joke and the song that that has inspired its punchline -- you'll be singing (and groaning) as you read it.
The Ants are My Friends Dec 11, 2007
I enjoyed the humor, but I also enjoyed the way each story made me think and have my suspicians confirmed (answers) and motivated me to think of other 'punchlines" and stories that might lead up to them. All in all--a great stress reliever and much needed. Sending some to friends and relatives for Christmas. Joy (Robin's 'Mommy Joy")
