Chuckle Buckle laughed a lot. It was usually because of all the tickles he’d got. Everything around him made his titter, even an electricity power cut and the fitter. The minute he got out of bed, he started chuckling till he bumped his head. Then he rolled around on the floor, instead. Haaa ! Haa ! Haa ! Hee ! Hee ! Hee ! No one could guess what was causing all this hilarity ! (and Chuckle Buckle’s giggling went on till tea). Once he’d eaten, after a while, Chuckle Buckle again started to smile. Chuckle Buckle chuckled some more … he laughed hysterically until his belly was sore. Chuckle Buckle had a joke book, that he glanced in every morning. Just to see what new funny gags he could tell to the others to stop them yawning. They roared so loud, that the pages became unstuck ! That was the magic of Chuckle Buckle’s chuckling book.
