Alloni | 9 comments Hi! Another book from 85-88ish, this one about a boy who can't take anything seriously - the eternal class clown. He gets taken into another world where things operate on joke logic - I remember specifically one city couldn't be entered unless you made a Spoonerism, and since the boy wasn't a native, his Spoonerism had to make sense both ways, so he asked a local, "May I take your coat? Then may I tote your cake?"
