    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.

    '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.'

    '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.'
