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.

I ordered this tablet of 125+ mad libs after seeing my 6-year-old daughter play with some of her friends from school while on a recent outing. If you haven't done mad libs for a while, you forget just how simple and fun they are. The 6 and 7 year olds had a blast and needed only the occasional clarification of a part of speech.

What I wish I would have known when I ordered this-- this is not a small stocking-stuffer size. This is huge tablet, about 8x10. So I wasn't able to use them in a stocking like I intended, but these have been highly enjoyable. We do them as a family and they always get laughs. My 8-year-old said when he saw me reviewing this, "Oh! Mad Libs! Give that five stars. That's the best, funniest book we have."@@@@Great family fun without electronics

I loved these as a kid - my brother, sister, friends and I would spend hours "playing" MAD LIBS, all the while not realizing that we were learning grammar!!!!! What a concept - learning made fun! Until we learned the difference between nouns, pro-nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, etc. we would simply look up the definition (with examples) of each in the front of the book. Oh, and it also helps with reading out load in front of others! Each person gets the opportunity to read the story with the "plugged-in" words, all the while laughing at the silliness of the story. So it's a great way to practice reading out loud in front of others without the anxiety of having to do so.
