Kids can cultivate their storytelling skills with these kooky comics. More than 60 pages of cartoon panels illustrate funny situations — but all the dialogue balloons are empty. That’s where the aspiring comedy writers come in, supplying each scene with witty repartee. For even more fun, they can color the pictures. Free Teacher’s Manual available. Grades: 3–5.
