500 Ways to Make Me Laugh…

500 Ways To Make Me Laugh Until I Cry and 500 Ways To Make Me Laugh Until I Explode are the first two titles in a new series of joke books from TickTock. Each title contains 144pp of funnies –  jokes, harmless pranks and flip-page stickmen animations – and delivering these on time was one of our biggest undertakings so far! We wanted the covers, spreads and illustration work to look lively and humorous, and ultimately be as appealing as possible to the target age range – children aged 8+.


144pp black and white books, featuring jokes, cartoons and pranks for children aged 8+
