    1. This is a cute little book filled with hammy jokes and bad puns. I love that kind of stuff so I really liked it. If you're into Mel Brooks' other comedy or if you've seen or heard the sketch this book is based on, you will probably like it (you may also already heard some of this book, as many of the jokes seem to be recycled from the sketch).
