I Funny Book Review by 7th Grader Jonathan April 13, 2018

IF

In the book, I Funny by James Patterson, Jamie Gram is a middle school aged kid. He is a kid who makes everyone laugh. When Jamie’s uncle told him he should compete in the kids comedy show, he said no. Then he thought about it for awhile. After telling a couple jokes to his aunt and uncle, he decided yes. When Jamie goes to his first competition he does well. Jamie goes to the state finals.

I liked this book because it is about a kid who loves to tell jokes. I love to tell jokes to other people. While I was reading this book, I laughed so many times. I recommend this book to people who love to tell jokes.
