Punished, By David Lubar

The Book Punished, by David Lubar, was a book about a boy who goes to the library to do a project with his friend. While in the library, he and his friend play tag. He is stopped by a man who blows dust at him but the dust is magical. Now whenever he talks, he always talks with a silly pun. He can’t ever stop saying puns for more than three words. His mom, dad, the principal, his teacher, his friend, and even his dog are annoyed by his puns. 

 He goes back to the library and the man sends him on a quest. The quest is to find seven oxymorons, seven anagrams, and seven palindromes. He has a little help from his friend who eventually gets so annoyed at him that he tries to steal what the main character teaches him. On the missions, the man only gives him 24 hours for each. T

his was a quick easy read and it was very funny and very interesting. If you want to make people laugh or at least just seem funny, this book may have some puns for you. But the real question is does Logan get his normal life back and stop making silly puns? It’s up to you to find out. I would recommend this to anyone who loves a god joke or anyone who likes a quick funny read
