Story about Being the best stand-up comic in I Even Funnier

Did you know In this follow up to the #1 New York Times bestseller I Funny, middle schooler Jamie Grimm has big dreams of being the best stand-up comic in the world--and he won't let the fact that he's wheelchair-bound stand in his way?
After winning the New York state finals in the Planet's Funniest Kid Comic Contest, Jamie's off to Boston to compete in the national semi-finals. But when one of his best buddies runs into trouble at school and a sudden family health scare rears its head, Jamie has to put his comedic ambitions on hold and stand by the people he cares about. Can Jamie pass up the big competition for the sake of his friends and family? (Includes more than 175 black-and-white illustrations.)

This book is all about jokes. Jamie gets even funnier and learns some new routines that are guaranteed to make you fall on the floor while laughing. Don't even get me started on is new friend, if you want to learn about him then you'll have to read the book.

After being declared “Funniest Kid in New York State” in I Funny (Book 1), Jamie Grimm is ready to go to the national semi-final comedy competition! Jamie, along with Gilda Gold, Joey Gaynor & Jimmy Pierce, is ready to make you laugh until you bust a gut! Jamie is totally psyched about the competition, but everything seems to be going wrong. Joey’s mom is dealing with having cancer and after getting into major trouble at school, Joey ends up having to move in with Jamie’s super-nice uncle Frankie. Jamie is still living with his terrible Aunt and Uncle and his horribly mean cousin (we learn in Book 1 that Jamie was hurt (and is now in a wheelchair) and his parents killed in a car crash before the series starts and he lives with his mom’s sister and her family). When Joey moves in with Uncle Frankie, Jamie also goes to live with him, which is good because Jamie’s cousin is being worse than ever. Things are going pretty well until Uncle Frankie has a heart attack! With all this going on, will Jamie become “The Planet’s Funniest Kid” or will all of his dreams go down the drain?

The best part of the book – that no matter what happens, the characters don’t give up. All the hardships the characters in the book go through make me care for them even more. The characters are believable middle school kids. Some of the story plot seems a bit sad, but it’s really the kind of things kids have to go through every day. The humor in the book is hysterical.

As a parent, many of us struggle to find appropriate reading material for our children. That want to read! No problem here!!! We want to encourage the love of reading and picture our children reading Charles Dickens and Mark Twain etc. Then we realize that they want to cling to picture books. Most schools don't verify that our children are checking out age appropriate material from the school library. A 5th grade child should NOT be reading a "Sesame Street" book. Nor does it seem that book reports are essential to developing comprehension anymore.This series of books is a great adjustment to "chapter books". They provide some illustration/visual entertainment and the story lines are fun and silly. Keep the child engaged in reading.

This book is a great book it will make you cry and make you laugh your butt off this book is amazing you need to read this book.
