Everyone loves a joke book and everyone will love this one with jokes suitable for all ages. There are knock, knock jokes; puns and riddles:

How does a snake hurry?
It gets a wriggle on.


What has four wheels and flies?
A garbage truck.

There is a joke for everyday of the year; great for kids to look up the joke for their birthday. Celebrity contributors include Australian cricketer Mitchell Johnson and actress Kate Ritchie. Black-and-white cartoonish illustrations add to the feel good vibe of the book.

But not only will you feel good from having a laugh, you will also feel good that all the royalties from sales of 365 Awesome Aussie Jokes will be donated by Scholastic to Camp Quality for their work in helping children and their families living with cancer through their recreational, educational and financial programs.

You can also send in your own Aussie joke for consideration for next year's joke book. Submit to
