I Funny: School of Laughs

I Funny: School of Laughs

by James Patterson Illustrated by Jomike Tejido
To save his school library, Jamie Grimm teaches other kids how to tell jokes in a comedy class — but it’s tougher than he expects in this funny book for kids of all ages.

Teaching other kids how to be funny is the toughest gig that Jamie Grimm has ever had, and with the highest stakes. If he fails, his school library will be shut down for good!

Even though he has a national contest trophy and a TV show under his belt, Jamie Grimm isn’t one to sit back and relax. When his school has a major funding crisis, Jamie hits on a bright idea to save the day — a comedy class for the other students. Little does he know that making jokes and teaching jokes are two very different things . . . and he’s only good at one of them. With the fate of his school’s library on his shoulders, Jamie has to dig deep to see if he has what it takes to succeed at his most difficult challenge yet.
I Funny

I Funny

In James Patterson’s heartwarming #1 New York Times bestseller, middle schooler Jamie Grimm faces bullying and self-doubt as he chases his dream to become the world’s greatest comedian.

Jamie Grimm is a middle schooler on a mission: he wants to become the world’s greatest standup comedian–even if he doesn’t have a lot to laugh about these days. He’s new in town and stuck living with his aunt, uncle, and their evil son Stevie, a bully who doesn’t let Jamie’s wheelchair stop him from messing with Jamie as much as possible. But Jamie doesn’t let his situation get him down. When his Uncle Frankie mentions a contest called The Planet’s Funniest Kid Comic, Jamie knows he has to enter. But are the judges only rewarding him out of pity because of his wheelchair, like Stevie suggests? Will Jamie ever share the secret of his troubled past instead of hiding behind his comedy act?

Following the bestselling success of the hilarious Middle School, The Worst Years of My Life, James Patterson continues to dish out the funnies in another highly-illustrated, heartfelt middle school story. (Includes more than 175 black-and-white illustrations.)

Pottymouth and Stoopid

Pottymouth and Stoopid

Bestselling author James Patterson’s best book for boys in years! Tired of being bullied, middle-school underdogs “Pottymouth” and “Stoopid” finally fight back with the power of funny.

David and his best friend Michael were tagged with awful nicknames way back in preschool when everyone did silly things. Fast-forward to seventh grade: “Pottymouth” and “Stoopid” are still stuck with the names–and everyone in school, including the teachers and their principal, believe the labels are true.

So how do they go about changing everyone’s minds? By turning their misery into megastardom on TV, of course! And this important story delivers more than just laughs–it shows that the worst bullying doesn’t have to be physical…and that things will get better. A great conversation starter for parents to read alongside their kids!

Official Notice to Parents:
There is no actual pottymouthing or stupidity in this entire book!
(Psst, kids: that second part might not be entirely true.)
