Description

'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



SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2022 BLUE PETER BOOK AWARD


SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2022 COSTA CHILDREN'S BOOK AWARD


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.
