Competition Parenting Reviews — 03 May 2012

Justin Mania isn’t just for teenage girls who love little, funny-haired pop stars, oh no. In our house manic behaviour is brought about by the sight of the ‘other Justin’, the children’s TV one, who loves nothing more than a good old gag or two. Great news then that Justin has brought out a new joke book – here’s my review of ‘My First Justin’s Jokes’ PLUS I have 5 copies for you to win!
My First Justin's Jokes, out now - review on

Independent Review: No sooner was My First Justin’s Jokes produced from my bag than it was snatched from my hands (note, must discipline about snatching). You see Justin is somewhat of a mega-star when it comes to kids. He is to children what John Bishop is to adults – a loveable, comic genius.

The great thing about Justin’s new book being a jokey one is there’s no preamble – it captures its audience right from the start. Think groans and mega moans (a la Christmas Cracker) from the adults whilst the kids, on the other hand, are doubled over, flat on the floor, crying with laughter. Yes, these jokes include poo and wee which is always a hit with our two.

I don’t want to be a spoiler and tell you all the jokes in the book as I think you’ll appreciate hearing them ‘fresh’ on first delivery. However, my personal favourite was the one about the Triceratops whilst Ferne loved the one about the Interrupting Cow.

There are about 40 jokes in the book and the pages are littered with pictures of Justin doing crazy stuff like pretending to be a Spaceman and juggling a can of peas. The pictures make it suitable for younger kids who can look at them whilst the parents tell the jokes. I would say that younger kids will need help understanding the jokes but after that they are quick to remember them. Ferne, for example, played a game with Grandpa where he read out the joke and she delivered the punch line. Noah was able to remember the jokes completely and could have had his own slot at the Comedy Store!

Priced at £4.99, published by Faber, on sale from 7th May…. I reckon My First Justin’s Jokes would make a great buy for any child aged 3+.
