Funny Kid: Stand Up by Matt Stanton.

stand upFunny Kid: Stand Up by Matt Stanton. Pub. HarperCollins, 2018.

Another gem for reluctant readers in Middle School and up to junior secondary school. The sort of book that has a lot of craziness going on, a load of laughs and characters that we all want to be but are too scared.

Max is Funny kid, a stand up comedian, but things do not go well for him. This time he is laughed off the stage by a clown called Tumbles and he feels he has lost his mojo.

Then his grandpa goes missing from the nursing home, suspected to have been kidnapped. A ransom note shows up but it looks phony and Max and his temporary best friend Hugo, plus duck who thinks Max is his mother and Abbey Purcell who is Max’s nemesis, are on the case.

Abbey thinks Max and Hugo have lifted stupidity to a new level and nobody in the nursing home wants Grandpa back, they call him Cranky-pants. Will Max find his grandpa and get his mojo back. Read it and find out, it is a load of fun.
