Top Ten Funny Books of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

I'm a kid, and I don't think there's anything funny about this book. It's just a bunch of crap mixed together to create a piece of garbage. Also, couldn't Jeff Kinney draw better pictures? Even the ones in Dork Diaries is better (although the pictures in there are actually really good)!

Your right, this is a children's book, because children can't settle for anything better! I'm a kid, yes, but other kids make me feel so smart, but I'm not, it's just that they have absolutely no taste! This book is an utter disaster!
Also, WHERE THE HECK IS PERCY JACKSON? THAT is a REAL children's book, and it is 10x funnier!

This book sucks I wish they would make on about kevin hart

It is really funny, and I hate how everyone treats it like it's the bane of all knowledge. the pictures don't look very great because its supposed to look like something a 6th grader could draw. and they're not made to make children idiots, they aren't made to challenge them either, they're just supposed to be funny books. so will you stop beating it to the ground?

2 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adam

The Meaning Of Life, Love, the Universe, and Everything: 42.

So long and thanks for all the fish - Toucan

This should be the on the top. I LAUGHED INHUMANLY HARD AT THIS.


3 The 52-storey Treehouse

And hey! He spelled storey right! - DapperPickle

5 Right Ho, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

P.G. Wodehouse is the ultimate laugh out loud of the universe! - HezarioSeth

He's the best comic author, no doubt!
His other best book is Thank You, Jeeves

The title doesn't look like this books for kids, funny how his name is PG wood house. - DapperPickle

21 Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce
22 The Very Bad Book by Andy Griffiths, Terry Denton

24 Tom Gates by Liz Pichon

HILARIOUS! This book is so funny and underrated. Just because it's British does not mean it is not good and funny. Should be in the top ten! My favourite bit is when DUDE3 high five Tom and my favourite character is Derek. Should be number one!

25 The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams
26 I Funny: A Middle School Story - James Patterson
27 Good Omens
28 Fudge-a-Mania by Judy Blume

One of the most funniest books I've ever read. I would have gone for 'Joy in the Morning' by P. G Wodehouse but I thought this ought to be on the list. - AndreaStephens

31 F**k Machine - Charles Bukowski

34 Tom Gates is Absolutely Fantastic! (At Some Things)

Love the Tom Gates books and this the best one.

35 Tom Gates: Everything's Amazing! (Sort Of)
36 Tom Gates: Top of the Class! (Nearly)

The author is not on this one or some other Tom Gates books because there is on the first one so you know who writes them. Funny by the way.

38 Tom Gates: Excellent Excuses (And Other Good Stuff!)
39 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
