From the Publisher
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?
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 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?
