I FunnyI Funny: a Middle School Story by James Patterson. 

“Do zombies eat doughnuts with their fingers? No. They usually eat their fingers separately.” Jamie Grimm collects and tells jokes as he tries to become the greatest stand-up comedian ever. 

Despite being wheel-chair bound, bullied and bombarded with self-doubt, Jamie sees the humor in life and aspires to make everyone laugh along with him. Readers will enjoy the touching story line that is infused with elements 


of comedy, compassion, and action. Chris Grabenstein’s accompanying line drawings compliment the tone of the book through use of visual gags and by fleshing out the characters.
