About the Author
Roger Price and Leonard Stern are both well known for their comedywriting. In the 1950s Roger Price created and developed cartoons called Droodles, which were turned into a television show. Before that Price worked with Bob Hope on a newspaper humor column, and he even appeared on Broadway in Tickets, Please!
Leonard Stern has an equally colorful and varied history. Before co-founding Price Stern Sloan with Roger Price (Sloan came later), Stern was a successful television writer. In addition to his creative involvement with over twenty television series and over ten motion pictures, Stern worked with Jackie Gleason in New York writing the Honeymooners. He also wrote for the Phil Silvers Show, The Steve Allen Show, and wrote and produced the original Get Smart television series. Recently, Stern published A Martian Wouldn't Say That, which compiled weird and wacky memos written by people in the entertainment industry.Currently, Stern serves as a senior vice president of Price Stern Sloan, where he still writes those hilarious Mad Libs.

P.S. For teachers: I still maintain that Mad Libs are the best way to teach -- or, at least, reinforce -- knowledge of parts of speech. So much more fun, in-context, and relevant-seeming than worksheets. One or two sessions with these, and my kids understand verbs, nouns, adjectives, etc. like they never had before.
I chose this exact book for this game. It was easily the best of them. My copy arrived in perfect condition. It is paperback with tons of pages. No matter how fast I go through them, I can't imagine finishing it anytime soon. This one will last you for ages!
It is absolutely PACKED with Mad Libs that never get old. My friends were laughing so hard that we've decided to make this a weekly ritual. Any age group would have fun with this. It's hard not to! Playing with children, your parents, your friends, anyone. It is a great ice breaker with new people.
We recently went on an eight hour road trip and these kept us laughing throughout the journey. The added bonus with Mad Libs is that are a surprisingly good educational tool. Definitely worth the money!
I picked this and a few other MAD LIBS books to play with the family (including my 7 year old niece) during our Christmas visit. It's still a lot of fun to see what silly, grammatically correct sentences are created when filling in the blanks. MAD LIBS certainly stands the test of time!

Playing madlibs with other people is incredibly good fun whether you're playing with kids or adults (especially with a few drinks in them). Some of the madlibs in this book are rather US-centric or a little dated, meaning that young children especially might be lost on the premise of a few of the stories but they still usually laugh their heads off at the nonsense of it all.
This is a rather large package so ideal for home. It is about an inch thick and A4 in dimension so ideal for coffee tables but less so for travel. We have taken ours on two holidays though and it has kept us all entertained during airport waits, flights and long drives.
Well worth the money, every family should own a madlibs book!
My son wasn’t convinced when he got it as a present, but after the first game loved them. Sheer, simple brilliance.
player 1 has the book and fills in the page
player 2 gives the words to fill in the blanks
player 1 reads back the story while player 2 has a mouthful of water (or other liquid)
try not to laugh or spit the water out... don't knock it until you try it - soooo funny
