Jamie is the new kid at school and he uses a wheelchair. He just wants to be treated like a normal student. He lives with the Smileys, Jamie's name for his aunt and uncle and cousins who will not laugh. Jamie's cousin Stevie, one of the Smileys, is his main bully. Jamie loves telling jokes so his Uncle Frankie encourages him to enter The Planet's Funniest Kid Comic Contest. Will Jamie enter?

This is a funny book which makes many good points about individuals with disabilities. The plot is very similiar to the real life story of Josh Blue who is a comedian with cerebral palsy who won the Last Comic Standing Contest.
