Book Description

Jamie Grimm is a middle schooler on a mission: he wants to become the world's greatest stand-up comedian - even if he always seems to 'choke' in the spotlight. When Jamie finds out about a contest called the Funniest Kid on the Planet, he knows it's time to face his fears and enter. But are the judges rewarding him out of pity because he happens to be in a wheelchair, like his bullying cousin Stevie suggests? And will Jamie ever share the secret of his troubled past - and reason for his disability - instead of hiding behind his comedy act?



In this highly illustrated book that's as heartfelt as it is hilarious, James Patterson dishes out heaps of jokes that will have readers rolling on the floor and cheering for more.

    Book Description

    Introducing James Patterson's most hilarious character ever!

    From the Inside Flap

    HI, I’M JAMIE GRIMM – AND I WANT TO MAKE YOU LAUGH!

    Do zombies eat doughnuts with their fingers?

    What do you get when you cross a parrot and a shark?

    What do mallards wear at a wedding?

    To find out the punchlines to these jokes and TONS of others, read on!

    You’ll hear the story of my insanely un-funny stepfamily, my mostly funny friends, an amazing person called Cool Girl, and the school bully, who happens to live in the same house as me – plus a secret I’m not exactly ready to tell you yet.

    But I WILL tell you that I’m on an unforgettable mission to win the Planet’s Funniest Kid Contest, and I want you there with me every step of the way!

    So sit back, relax, and get ready to howl…

    till there are tears in your eyes…

    till you shiver and shake…

    till your sides start to split…

    and then you BUST A GUT!

    By Mark Baker - Carstairs Considers TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Format:Hardcover
    Jamie Grimm has been dealt a few tough blows that have landed him with his aunt, uncle and cousins. Unfortunately, one of those cousins happens to be the class bully at the middle school Jamie now attends.

    And how does Jamie deal with all this? By comedy. He's so funny that he draws a crowd at a different uncle's diner. But when this uncle suggests Jamie try out for the local first round of the funniest kid in America contest, Jamie balks. He's not really that funny, is he? Would he win?

    Being a book about a comedian, I'm not that surprised I found it funny. I chuckled and laughed at the jokes throughout the book. Some of them are from other comedians, but that doesn't make them any less funny. I liked Jamie and rooted for him to win.

    My problem with the book came from the plot. The main plot was predictable, but that's not really a complaint for me. On the other hand, I did feel that there was potential for more conflict. The set up was there, but then those plot threads were dropped. I know I'm talking about a book aimed at late elementary school on, but why introduce those potential conflicts and then drop them.

    In the end, I'm sure the target age won't mind at all. I certainly enjoyed the book as I read it. But those dropped plot threads really could have led to something better.
