Funny Girl
Funny Girl: Funniest. Stories. Ever. | Betsy Bird
10 posts | 8 read | 6 to read
Funny Girl is a collection of uproarious stories, rollicking comics, rib-tickling wit, and more, from 25 of todays funniest female writers for kids. What could be funnier than family? Read stories about Ursula Brown's grandmother driving her on a road trip to disaster, Lisa Brown's little brother getting a Tic-Tac stuck up his nose, and Carmen Agra Deedy's mom setting the bathtub on fire. What could be funnier than friends? Pretty much nothing, as Rita Williams-Garcia shows two besties hatching a bird-brained scheme to get on to a TV talk show, and Deborah Underwood introduces a dynamic dog-and-cat duo teaming up on a pet advice column. What could be funnier than YOU? Tell your future with Mad Libs, discover your Chinese Zodiac sign with Lenore Look, and learn the best tricks of the comedy trade from professional humorists like Adrianne Chalepah and Delaney Yeager. With clever contributions from award-winning and bestselling authors including Cece Bell, Sophie Blackall, Libba Bray, Shannon Hale, Lisa Graff, and Raina Telgemeier, this anthology of funny girls will make you laugh until you cry. Or cry until you laugh. Or maybe you won't cry at all. Either way, you'll definitely laugh. Funny Girl isnt just an anthology: its a cause, a mission, a movement. Girls are funny. Now its time for the world to know it. From the Hardcover edition.

I gave this book to my 10 year old daughter and she loves it! Funny stories are her favorite and she read the whole book the night I gave it to her. She has had me read a few of the stories and so far I think "Dear Grandpa: Give Me Money" is the funniest.

Tamra I‘ll be sure to pick it up - my kids love funny! 2y
lesliemarie @Tamra FYI there is a story where a 12 year old girl discusses periods. In a funny way, but still. 2y
Tamra @lesliemarie oh, they‘ll love to laugh about that! 😹 2y
lesliemarie @Tamra My daughter, too! I'm pretty sure that's the first one she read 😄 2y

HELP! How do you manage your TBR list?! I can't keep up!! This is such a tiny fraction of my pile 😳

Lmstraubie I've given in to it and accepted being unable to manage it. 😣😉 2y
Sace I use the @Lmstraubie method. 😉 2y
Onlaughterandliteracy @Lmstraubie and @RestlessFickleBookSlut lol 🤣🤣 super helpful! But also kind of what I was thinking. If I didn't want to read everything (or at least most) that I put in my classroom library, I would have AS big of a problem. 2y

janeycanuck My TBR has gotten out of control so I'm attempting a 2 out, 1 in policy. Right now, I'm 15 books behind on the out side of the equation #noshame 2y
Onlaughterandliteracy @janeycanuck the struggle is so real!!! 2y
moranadatter I ignore mine and go based on moods and whims. All's Faire in Middle School is fantastic though. So good! 2y
Onlaughterandliteracy @moranadatter agreed!! I read it yesterday and loved it! 2y

If you're looking for recommendations, I've just put a quick run-through of what I've read in the last month on my blog (hint, there's more than what's pictured here!). The link is in my profile! What was the last book you read? Are there any from my post that you've read? If so, what did you think of them?

If your flight is cancelled and you're rebooked on a flight about 800 miles out of your way, these are not bad books to have in your carry on.

One of the books I couldn't leave at the bookstore! I'm hoping it's as wonderful as the authors listed. 🙂

What a great opportunity this would've been to talk about jokes that include vs. jokes that exclude.

None of the examples in this essay were super great (insult your dad's cooking! imitate a person with a prosthesis!), but here's an example that clearly demonstrates that they assume the person reading this does not have a Southern accent, does not live on a farm, and exists in a cultural context where poor rural Southerners are ridiculous. SIGH.
