Be the first to ask a question about The Pocket Book of Boners. Lists with This Book. I found this second hand somewhere and thought the title was strange enough to be interesting.
When I read it I discovered that it’s not great piece of humor, more smiles than laugh out loud, but still entertaining.
It is collection of absurd, odd, funny, or strange sentences from student papers and examinations. I don’t think it is great book, but I still open it at random now and then to read a couple of lines. What can I say, nonsense can make me smile. Well, this was a lot of fun.
It purports to be real things written by students on tests, and a lot of them are pretty funny. At least a few are pretty clearly from smart-asses rather than just being bone-head mistakes, and some seem just too good to be true, but it doesn’t really matter much I guess. I bought this mainly for the Dr. Seuss illustrations, of which there are not enough.
Good for a fee laughs, though. Jul 23, Alessandra rated it liked it Shelves: A very early Dr. Seuss book of a classic type, a collection of ridiculous things students wrote in exam papers.
The statements are funny and Dr. Seuss’ illustrations make them even better. It’s interesting to compare it to his later work.
