Author Biography

Lisa Ayotte, an educator in CT, loves finding ways to make reading easier and fun for children. She believes kids learn best when they can visualize and make connections to what they read. And when something is funny to them, even better!
Lisa decided to create her "Peeps" as unique and diverse as the students she's taught over her many years as an elementary school teacher. She enjoys designing each scene, adding small details as she goes, to capture the reader's attention and help them focus on the "little" things.

Punny Peeps' Silly Cat & Dog Jokes by Lisa Ayotte is a delightfully clever, entertaining, punny-fun book filled with not only cat and dog Punny Peeps, but lots of other witty critter-characters that have joined the giggle party. The pages are filled with uniquely vibrant, detailed scenes that fit perfectly with the jokes and make this imaginative book that much more adorable. This is the perfect, uplifting, joy-spreading book you could take just about anywhere; classrooms, road trips, picnics, parties, around the campfire, etc. There are also wonderful messages included at the end from the author. We should all remember to take time each day to read and laugh and share joy and kindness with others. Great reminders for people of all ages!

Punny Peeps' Silly Cat & Dog Jokes by Lisa Ayotte is chock-full of the coolest, wittiest puns and riddles and sure to entertain on any occasion. I think this is a marvelous book for students to practice vocabulary skills, challenge themselves, and see things from a different perspective (a sillier perspective). Some jokes are easily understood right away, and some will most certainly make ya think! Either way, this is a funny, educational book that will be a great addition to any bookshelf. I absolutely loved the staged illustrations and the overall presentation along with the jokes. It made everything just pop and will help children understand the riddles and piece things together. Original and uplifting, I highly recommend Punny Peeps’ Silly Cat & Dog Jokes to anyone who loves to laugh!

“Why did the cats join a band?” you might ask. Well, it’s simple when you think about it: “Because they love making mew-sic!” Oh! What fun we can have with the English language. Just twist a few phonetics here and there and you have all kinds of made-up words to add a little humor to the day. Weave these phonetically modified words around with two favorite pets, cats and dogs, and you have some hilarious phonetic possibilities. In other words, you’ve created some pretty awesome jokes. What a great way to break the ice, share a lighter moment, or even strengthen one’s reading vocabulary!

Lisa Ayotte has created another Punny Peeps collection of jokes. This one focuses on cats and dogs. Punny Peeps’ Silly Cat & Dog Jokes is all its title suggests and more. There are 32 “silly” jokes that twist and modify the phonetics of the English language around, you got it, cats and dogs. There’s the one about cats liking mice cream and the dogs’ favorite treats of pup-sicles. There are even silly jokes about different breeds of dogs like the dog-crab crossbreed of a Doberman pinch-er and the cactus-cat crossbreed of a plant-a-pus! As the author claims, being silly is peep-tastic! This collection of jokes will have you chuckling every time you share one of the unique jokes. The best part, in my opinion, is the illustrations which are scenes created to elaborate on the themes presented in the jokes. Like all the other Punny Peeps books full of clever jokes, this one is a keeper.

Punny Peeps’ Silly Cat & Dog Jokes by Lisa Ayotte is an illustrated children’s joke book that will not only make children laugh but also keep them entertained with highly visual illustrations. The book provides funny little jokes, or puns, which are set up by the Peeps with Peep One telling the joke and Peep Two filling in the punchline. The theme is cats and dogs with each little illustration set up with the Peeps and cute cats and dogs. The illustrations are so much fun and match with the jokes so children have a visual aid. With jokes such as Where do cats like to go swimming? — In the kitty pool! this book will make children giggle while bringing a smile of joy to the faces of adults as well.

What I liked most about Punny Peeps’ Silly Cat & Dog Jokes was that the overall theme was of spreading joy. At the end of the book, author Lisa Ayotte encourages children to not be sad that the book is over but to jot down their own jokes with their own characters and scenes. This is a sure way to keep children creative while also teaching them to bring laughter and smiles to others. The book is family-oriented with an emphasis on fun, sharing, and laughing. I really loved the images and thought they matched up so well with the jokes! The Peeps were also unique and should be a hit with children. All in all, this book was written with a joy that spans the pages and will be a family favorite for years to come.
