It's a Punderful Life: A fun collection of puns and wordplay

Puns often mistakenly get a bad rep, but if they're good enough for Oscar Wilde and Shakespeare (whose work featured over 3000 puns), it's good enough for us. Hot off the back of her incredibly popular Monday Punday online series, Gemma Correll has surveyed her army of punning fans to create this hilarious collection of her best illustrated puns, as well as loads of new on ...more

I was tempted to write a pun-filled review, but I’m really not that punny.

Whilst it was a nice enough quick read, it was nowhere near as amusing as I had expected it to be. I gave one or two giggles, and that was about it.

Short and sweet, but not the best collection of puns.
First up, I want to thank my boyfriend for giving this to me as a Birthday Present, thanks dear! So happy with this one!

I just love puns (even the bad ones, though I will groan and shake my head at them), some people are just really creative with coming up with them. I spotted this book on Goodreads after I read another pun book. I just knew I had to have it. Gemma Correll's art is wonderful, she is one of my favourite artists, and I just had to know what kind of puns she made/drew.

The book "It's a Punderful Life: A Fun Collection of Puns and Wordplay" by Gemma Correll is a 64 page book that can put a smile on anyones face! I got as a Christmas present and as I started to read it, I started to feel so silly that I was cracking up about some of these puns! For example, there is a photo of a bucket of cream that is saying that nobody appreciates it, and then at the top it says "Sour Cream." I was giggling to myself on that one, but I cracked up on the next one! The next one ...more

I bought this book for a friend and after I gave him the present, we ended up reading it together.
It was such a gloomy day but this book definitely cheered me up! Puns never fail to put a smile on my face and I laughed aloud a few times just because I couldn't help myself--some of them were just that funny. Adorable pictures and witty lines. It was positively adorable.
I definitely recommend this book. It's such a sweet gift to give and receive, or even buy for yourself.

The illustrations finish a lovely little collection of play on words... Not all great quality... But some made it all worth the entireties (I.e., Nom De Plum for The name of a purple fruit, Complex Carbohydrates for Existentialists & overly emotional breads, etcetera)... Again, even the more obvious ones deserved credit for creative illustrations...

One of my Christmas presents (thanks, Mom!) - a perfect combination of Gemma Correll's delightful illustrations and giggle-prompting puns. My only (minor) complaint is that it was over too fast (but I'm sure I'll pick it up off my shelves many times in the future to enjoy again).

What a punderfully delightful book. If you're looking for a gift to give someone who has everything, here it is. They will laugh and maybe even have to think a bit. Everyone in my house ended up reading it.

Definitely one of my favorite "coffee table" books. The puns and illustrations are delightfully clever and at times nothing less than utterly hilarious! Fan of puns or not, you'd be missing out by not reading this little gem!

So.. this book is in British English. I am American. Some of the puns were not immediately obvious for this reason. Silly me!

Also, it was way shorter than I thought it would be. Sorta disappointing.

Only takes about five minutes to read, but a hilarious read none the less. If you're a fan of really cheesy puns then I would recommend giving this a flick through.
