9780064407236: My Life as a Fifth-Grade Comedian

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.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Levy loves to tell stories that combine serious issues with humor. She has proven it with her award-winning books for young readers, including My Life As A Fifth-Grade Comedian, Keep Ms. Sugarman In The Fourth Grade, and other best-selling books in the Sam and Robert series, including Frankenstein Moved In On The Fourth Floor and Dracula Is A Pain In The Neck. She lives in New York City.

From AudioFile:

Everything, including school, is a joke to Bobby Garrick. This time he's gone too far and has one month to show the principal that he's serious about his education. His assignment, surprisingly, is to plan a school wide laugh-off--a contest between teachers and kids to choose the funniest person. Bobby slowly realizes that not everything is a joke and learns to forgive his father in the process. Heller splendidly presents students, parents, teachers and the principal. Heller's finesse even makes the corny jokes cute (if not always funny). His timing and delivery are perfect for the targeted audience. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
