Synopsis







'Very funny, very touching, very truthful - a total delight

to read.' Jacqueline Wilson

'Amazing' Noel Fielding

A laugh-out-loud, against-all-odds triumph of a story:

the funniest debut of 2021





Billy Plimpton is an eleven-year-old boy with a big

dream.





He wants to be a stand-up comedian when he grows up: delivering

pinpoint punch-lines and having audiences hang on his every hilarious

word.





A tough career for anyone, but surely impossible for Billy, who

has a stammer. How will he find his voice, if his voice won't let

him speak?





The idea for this story came from Helen Rutter's son, who has

a stammer: she wanted to write the book that he would love to read,

starring a child like him.











Praise for The Boy Who Made Everyone Laugh







'This incredibly debut tugs at your heartstrings and makes you

laugh out loud in equal measure. I guarantee you'll be cheering

along in the final pages!' Lisa Thompson





'It's Wonder with one-liners.' Scott Evans, The Reader Teacher







'As warm and wise as it is funny.' Shappi Khorsandi







'A laugh out loud story, the like of which I've never read before.'

Kerry Godliman





'This book is a great way of showing children how to be confident

and winners by having a sense of humour and making others laugh.'

Baroness Floella Benjamin





'This book is brilliant. It is funny, wise, kind and exciting.'

Marcus Brigstocke





'So funny and joyful.' Rachel Parris
