  '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 WINNER OF THE LOLLIES AWARD 2023 SELECTED FOR THE 2022 READ FOR EMPATHY COLLECTION    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.   Don't miss the second book in Billy's adventures: The Funniest Boy in the World   More praise for The Boy Who Made Everyone Laugh: SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2022 BLUE PETER BOOK AWARD SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2022 COSTA CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD  'This incredibly debut tugs at your heartstrings and makes you laugh out loud in equal measure.
