About the Author
Roger Price and LeonardStern created Mad Libs in the 1950s and the series has been a favorite among kids of all ages ever since. Although Roger Price passed away in 1990, Leonard Stern keeps the tradition alive by writing new Mad Libs all the time.
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.
Wild horses could not sway my views and all opinions are my own, and reflect my personal experience with this product. I strive to make my reviews as helpful as possible to others, because helpful and honest reviews are just as important to me when I am making my buying decisions. If you feel any of this information was helpful, please click the "Yes" button. Thanks!
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!
