Product Overview

Bobby is the class clown. He can always be counted on to crack up his friends and sometimes even the teachers. But he can''t always be counted on to stay out of trouble''and that''s no joke when you''re in danger of being shipped off to a special school for kids with ''behavioral problems.'' Bobby''s got one last chance to prove to his teachers, his principal, and his parents''especially his super-sarcastic dad''that he can be taken seriously. His assignment: to put on a school-wide laugh-off. It''s teachers vs. students''and may the best comic win. It''s also a chance for Bobby to show his dad that mean jokes aren''t just kidding around. Packed with kid-tested jokes and riddles, this funny novel is also a thoughtful exploration of the power of laughter to hurt''and to heal.

"Things may work out a little too well in the end, but scenes of Bobby's home life and his relationship with his friends and relatives make this book hard to put down."
"Bobby is a sympathetic, strongly articulated character....a character worth rooting for..."
From the Publisher
First Line "Yuck!" shouted Mr. Matous. The doorknob rattled as he tried to turn it. The class cracked up. They say that laughter is the best medicine. If that's so, then call me the doctor. I was the one who had put Vaseline on the outside doorknob.
Editors Note The principal threatens to send Bobby to the School for Intervention because of his constant clowning, but Bobby is given one last chance: to organize a schoolwide laugh-off and get the teachers and students to compete. Reprint.
