Last Laughs: Animal Epitaphs

LastLaughs_300Written by J. Patrick Lewis and Jane Yolen, Illustrated by Jeffrey Stewart Timmins

Last Laughs is filled with funny puns and poems about the demise of thirty unlucky animals. The dark wit and the dark illustrations work well together to create a hilarious collection of short, to-the-point epitaphs. This is the kind of morbid humor that kids love and I think they’re going to love this book.
