Annotations for That's Not Funny

Baker & Taylor

McMillan Palgrave

Alfie likes to laugh--mostly at other people's misfortune. But Alfie's grandpa isn't always amused by the same things Alfie is. When Grandpa takes him to the circus, Alfie finds lots of people to laugh at along the way. But wait until Alfie learns that the last laugh is on him. Adrian Johnson's witty, retro illustrations add to the fun in this hilarious look atschadenfreude--the delight in others' misfortune.
