Review: Who’s On First

I’m asking YOU who’s on first!

Authors: Bud Abbott, Lewis Costello, John Martz

This is a children’s book. This is a real children’s book!

The classic Abbott and Costello routine is in a children’s book. The plot is one simple joke: A baseball coach is trying to explain that his players are named things like: Who, What and I Don’t Know. confusion and hilarity follows.

Once upon a time, long long ago, before Youtube, there was a thing called Vaudeville. Talented performers would go around to theatres doing songs and skits. Some of the best of these performers were Abbott and Costello. I love Abbott and Costello.

I personally prefer their math skit better, but Who’s on First is great too! I highly recommend this book for the young and the young at heart!
