Annoying Orange: How to Be Annoying (A Joke Book)
by Brandon T. Snider
Ages 7-12 112 pages HarperFestival August 2013 Paperback    

The food faces in this book look a little creepy with their human features, but that adds interest and appeal to this joke book about fruit and other edibles:
Orange: What do you call cheese that isnít yours?
Cheese: Iím not playing your game, okay?
Orange: NACHO CHEESE
The jokes are meant to make the reader groan and shake their head (Orange: I thought it took two to MANGO) or chuckle about a play on words (Bread: I feel firm. Like I could take over the world. Orange: I donít know. You look like a LOAFER to me.) The sections are somewhat divided into food themes, and the jokes range from long silly jokes to short rude ones.

The splotches of orange, yellow and green that appear on the page resemble spilled juice; white frames border many of the photographs. Kids looking for a unique looking joke book or fans of the Annoying Orange YouTube channel or Cartoon Network show may like to read through this book.
