I Even Funnier is a welcome return for Jamie, wheel-chair-using wannabe comedian and star of James Patterson’s new series. Once again, Jamie’s preparations for a comedy competition give the plot an impetus that will get and keep kids turning the pages, while sub-plots concerning Jamie’s family and friends – much-loved uncle Frankie, far less likeable bully of a cousin Stevie, and friend Gaynor – provide new storylines and the chance for a bit of reflection on what’s really important in life. I Even Funnier is as funny as I Funny and as involving and touching too, which is real praise. There’s a guest appearance by Rafe Khatchadorian too in cartoon strip form that I very much enjoyed! ~ Andrea Reece
