Jamie Grimm, he funny. He very funny in fact. Book one in this new series by James Patterson follows his progress as he enters a local comedy competition for kids. The plotline allows for jokes a-plenty, while Jamie’s comical observations on life add to the humour. But it’s not all laughs. As Jamie himself puts it, he’s a stand-up comic who doesn’t fit the job description: an accident has put him in a wheelchair. The urge to find out what happened to Jamie will keep readers turning the pages just as much as the laughs and beneath the surface there’s a tender and affecting story, very skilfully told. ~ Andrea Reece


I Funny Synopsis

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?
