The Pocket Book of Boners is a book illustrated by Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss), originally published as four separate books in 1931–32 by The Viking Press. In 1941, Readers' League of America compiled these four books and published the Pocket Book of Boners. It was one of the bestselling paperback books of World War II, with 1.34 million copies in print by 1945. At the time of its writing, the term "boner" was not commonly used to mean an erection, with sexual connotation, but rather as a term meaning "silly mistake".

The Pocket Book of Boners contains 22 illustrations of boners, drawn by Dr. Seuss. The rest of the volume consists of short jokes and humorous observations with most being no more than four lines long. It is notable for being an early example of Dr. Seuss' distinct illustration style.
