    It was touching but hilarious story. It is about a handicapped boy and his dream to become a stand-up(sorry sit-down) comedian

    The jokes were hit or miss with me, but maybe they would play better spoken out loud? Definitely something to try with child readers. I think my favorite was the visual humor, though. That was where the drawings actually came in handy. The bumper stickers on the back of Jamie’s chair, for example, were always changing. There were others as well so if you’re reading, keep an eye out for them!

    So if you want a good laugh and a sweet story behind it, go ahead and pick up this book. Recommending to everyone, because you’re never too old to laugh and it actually might help improve your day!
