Some of these were hilarious while others were a bit sad. There were some definite laugh out loud moments! ( )

After I read the first one of this series of books I couldn't wait to read more. Lots of creative answers. Plan on trying to read all the others. ( )

A lovely little book about stupid answers to test questions. The examples by elementary children are hilarious because they don't know what they are saying... from the high school and college aged kids... It can be hit or miss. Sometimes the answers are just showing off ignorance. ( )

Incredibly hilarious. Part of me desperately wants to believe that these are made up, but sadly, having worked with the students that I have, I'm all too ready to believe that some children are, indeed, this stupid.
(I had three students try to argue, one day, that lice were dead skin that came to life.) ( )
