When the school library is threatened to be shut down, Jamie and his friends try to save it for the sake of his Uncle Frankie by holding activities there, which includes Jamie's class on how to be funny. But Jamie soon realizes that teaching someone how to laugh isn't as easy as it seems to be. How will he be able to save the library?
I Funny: School of Laughs
By James Patterson
Even though he has a national contest trophy and a TV show under his belt, Jamie Grimm isn't one to sit back and relax. When his school has a major funding crisis, Jamie hits on a bright idea to save the day--a comedy class for the other students. Little does he know that making jokes and teaching jokes are two very different things...and he's only good at one of them. With the fate of his school's library on his shoulders, Jamie has to dig deep to see if he has what it takes to succeed at his most difficult challenge yet.

for book report
Awesome like nachos
Wow! Just wow. You might underestimate this sit-down stand-up comedian, but underestimate no longer! Jamie Grimm is NOT another handicapped character to be pitied. He is, however, a boy who was involved in a car accident which caused him to be paralyzed from the waist down. But Jamie overcomes this with jokes. Knock-knock jokes, one-liners, puns, riddles, you name it, Jamie says them all! In this book, Coach Ball, the sports-obsessed principal, wants to close the library and use it as a sweat room for the wrestling team. Fortunately, the school board comes up with an idea: if the library can show that a majority of the students use the place, then it won't close. But here's the catch: they have to do this by the end of the month. That's when Jamie and his friends have this great idea- he teaches a joke school in the library for kids who want to be comics like him. The only thing that's a bit off with the book is that there is a pattern of him being bullied, and the author shows it in (sometimes) a way that might make you think he should be pitied. But this is the truth: HE FUNNY!
