"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. (from the first line)
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.

From the Publisher:
Bobby's constant clowning has the principal threatening to send him to the School for Intervention -- just one step away from reform school. Luckily, Bobby's teacher gives him one last chance: to organize a schoolwide laugh-off and get teachers and students to compete. Bobby knows he's got to make the contest a success. Will he be able to prove to everybody that he's finally got his act together?
Annotation:
Bobby is a class clown who can't stop acting out in school--he's always cracking up the other students but annoying the teacher. Finally, Bobby's father tells him that if his attitude doesn't improve, he'll send Bobby to a special school for students with "behavioral problems." Now Bobby has just one chance to prove himself worthy of staying in school--he's been assigned to put on a school-wide laugh-off: teachers vs. students. Will Bobby be able to prove to his father that his jokes aren't just for kidding around?

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Bobby is a sympathetic, strongly articulated character....a character worth rooting for..." - Janice M. Del Negro January 1998
