Canada's  only festival celebrating

books that crack kids up!


Canada's Funniest Authors

Presenting sponsor

Not every kid loves to read... but EVERY kid loves to laugh.

That’s the big idea behind Funny Pages, Canada’s only festival devoted to books that crack kids up. We believe humour can introduce even the most reluctant reader to the joy of books - and even the most reluctant writer to the joy of putting a smile on someone’s face. Through Funny Pages, we want to see low literacy rates laughed right out of existence.

On Friday, April 22nd 2022, Funny Pages will be putting the “Ha!” into the Halifax Central Library. Hundreds of kids from Grades Four through Eight will enjoy a day of author presentations, comedy workshops, book-signings. Meanwhile, thousands of students throughout the country will share in the fun online.

On Saturday, April 23rd 2022, preschool and elementary kids can join in on the fun with an event featuring Sheree Fitch and Kate Beaton at the Halifax Central Library. 

A registered non-profit society, Funny Pages is a year-round initiative promoting the love of reading with the help of some of Canada’s funniest authors.
