Knock knock! Who's there? Barry Loser's Christmas Joke Book Wow! Really? It's snow joke...


It's the keelest time of the year, so why not celebrate with this collection of Christmas crackers from everyone's favourite loser?


A festive feast of puns, one-liners, cartoons and funny tales, all with a Barry Loser twist. Perfect for sharing with friends and family and best enjoyed when read very loudly at 5am on Christmas morning. All jokes guaranteed to make you snort-laugh a mince pie through your nose*.


We wish you a Barry Christmas, and an amazekeel new year!


*Any unfunny jokes were written by Barry's dad.

A great Joke book full of funny jokes on a variety of different things to do with Christmas. We know our daughter will love reading this and sharing the jokes with family. It is the perfect size and a great stocking filler ;)
We would recommend.

This book was really funny with lots of different jokes from 'Knock Knock' jokes to reindeer jokes. There are lots of funny pictures and they're all black and white. I really liked the joke about having Granny and Grandad for Christmas lunch. If there were more stars than 5 I would have given it more because it made me laugh lots and lots.

A great joke book that my son loves. 

The text is just the right size for him to read without any help. 

I myself often look in it to tell jokes !!

This is our first 'Christmas Joke Book' and I really like it! I learnt some jokes by heart and made my dad laught really loudly when he came back home from work. My favourite jokes are about the school. I decided to take the book to school and show it to my friends. They were all giggling and I think this is the best recommendation! I think it's a cute little joke book for kids.

Totally Keel joke book!

My youngest two sons are both big fans of Jim Smith's Barry Loser series so were delighted to discover this Christmas themed joke book with their favourite characters.

The book contains a range of jokes, some specifically Christmas themed, others just fairly typical cheesy fun. This is well matched with the target age group which I'd say is around seven to ten years. The jokes here are not sophisticated or complex but definitely had my seven and ten year olds laughing and giggling. This would make a lovely stocking filler or a nice item to include in a Christmas Eve box to put a smile on everybody's face ready for the special day.

The Barry loser joke book is quite funny and it is very good. It has a lot of funny

jokes. I won this book in a competition,I was very pleased because I like the series of Barry Loser books. The Barry Loser books are about a boy called Barry Loser and his second name is Loser because his grandpa kept losing things. This book is not like the others because it is just a book of silly jokes rather than a story. Here is one of the jokes from the book: wich famous person laughed so much his pants fell of? Saint knickerless! On the front cover it says “ideal pressie” and I think that it is an ideal pressie. I would definatly recommend this book aand the whole series.

134 black and white pages with mostly one joke per page and pictures on every page. My 6 year old read the whole book in one sitting. He particularly loved the many jokes about poo and the knock-knock jokes which took me back (knock knock, who's there? Europe... etc!) The last 15 pages or so are more wordy with a 'Did you know' section and his absolute favourite 'Santa's Magic Slide'. Would definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading more Barry Loser books as this was our first.

My son hasn't put this book down, and each day we hear a new joke.  Some of the jokes are AWFUL, even a Christmas cracker company would reject them instantly, but it certainly keeps my 7 year old entertained.  He did say he LOVES this book. 

I think it's a great stocking filler idea, and it's one that can be put away in the bookcase until next year, when they have forgotten it, and they will enjoy reading it again!

A hilariously funny joke book, jampacked with lots of jokes, about everything to do with Christmas. Lots of slapstick humour, suitable for all ages
