Review by Mia Madden, aged 11 years.
This book is the third installment of the I Funny series from James Patterson. It is about Jamie Grimm, a boy in a wheelchair, who is extremely funny. Jamie has entered the planet's funniest kids comic contest and is through to part one of the finals. The only problem is, he has a bad case of stage fright. But his trip to fame will help him learn that there is no need to be afraid on stage. With his friends and family behind him, will he be 'totally funniest'?
I loved this book because there were really funny puns and jokes (which I love). It is a great story which says that it doesn't matter what your physical abilities are, we are all good at something. It was well written and had really cool pictures in it too. I don't actually know anyone in a wheelchair, so it was nice to read about someone who is. The book is set in Long Beach, California and it was interesting reading about the hurricane, as we don't get many of those in Ireland!
Although this is the third book in the series, you don't have to have read the first two. Things are explained in this installment.
I would recommend this book for ages 8+
