I Even Funnier #Giveaway

Michelle of Honest & Truly!, a 5 Minutes for Mom contributor, shares her thoughts on I Even Funnier by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein in this video book review.  She was compensated for this article.

I Even FunnierI remember middle school fondly, though I know I’m in the minority.  As the wee ones start to approach that milestone – only one and a half years left for Mister Man – I have noticed that there is a plethora of books out there that we both enjoy reading.  I Even Funnier by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein, the second book in this middle school series, falls directly in that genre (you can read my review of the first book, I Funny, at 5 Minutes for Books).

The book is hilarious, following Jamie Grimm as he attempts to win the “Planet’s Funniest Kid Comic” contest at the regional level.  The book is filled with jokes and laughs, but it also addresses serious issues from responsibility to serious illness to bullying and more.  It addresses this without being preachy, making it more palatable to (hopefully) sink in with kids.

I enjoyed both I Funny, which I reviewed on 5 Minutes for Books, as well as I Even Funnier, the second book following Jamie Grimm.  But why write about it when Mister Man and I can share our thoughts on James Patterson’s most recent foray into kid lit?

About the book

I Even Funnier is the side-splitting second installment in James Patterson’s hilarious #1 New York Times bestselling series for kids!

Middle Schooler Jamie Grimm has big dreams of being a stand-up comic and he’s not about to let anything get in his way of making his dreams come true! In this second book in the series, Jamie is off to the state finals in the Planet’s Funniest Kid Comic Contest, but there’s another kid who thinks he’s a million times funnier than Jamie…who will win?

Filled with hilarious jokes and plenty of heart, this is the perfect book for boys and girls (psst…even those who don’t like to read!)

    My grandsons, my 40+ joke-telling son and his wife, a middle school English teacher, and I would all love these books. I especially appreciate the message of finding humor in a variety of difficult daily circumstances of life.

    School age kids 6th grade and up would like these books. An older sibling reading it to a younger one would also be sweet. Middle School is the stage in life where awkwardness happens and clears up somewhat. I can see where James Patterson tapped into the funning times.

    My 11-year old by LOVES the first one and is anxiously awaiting the second. I know he’d love a chance to actually own both of them. :)

    My son loves books that are “different”, even though he also reads chapter books. I think he would love these! Thanks for the chance to win!
