Junior Review: Funny Kid Stand Up

This story is about Max. Max is the funny kid, or so he used to be, but he has lost all his 'funny.' It's terrible timing as the town talent show is on. Max loses his grandpa to kidnappers and goes on an adventurous journey meeting lots of new people.

Max is a funny kid, but doesn't always know it. He can be stubborn, annoying, silly and scared. Sometimes he looks on the bright-side and sometimes the dark.

I liked the surprises and exciting parts. It is a great book for anyone to enjoy. It's funny, exciting, awesome and nerve-wracking. There is a lot of suspense which kept me turning the pages. I couldn't put it down.

The writing is quite big with lots of pictures through the pages in a cartoon style. It is really easy to read so it would be good for some kids who may find reading a bit hard.

I would totally and definitely recommend this book to my friends. They would really love it.
