Jamie Grimm lost the use of his toes, his feet and his legs in a car accident which killed the rest of his family and he gets about in a wheelchair. This however, is not going to stop him entering the contest to find The Planet’s Funniest Kid Comic. Like all books by James Patterson the story, plot and characters zip along at a great and irresistible rate with a few poignant comments on the human race in general thrown in. It is easy to read and enhanced by the comic-like illustrations by Laura Park.
Great for not-so-enthusiastic readers.
