James Patterson’s books can do no wrong ! Jamie Grimm does not have a lot to laugh about but he enjoys helping others to smile, helping to sooth the pain of his own problems. Illustrated in comic style by Chris Grabenstein there are a lot of kids… and adults!… who will benefit from reading this book. My favourite sentence which draws the whole story together? “When the world says ‘Give up,’ hope whispers ‘try it one more time.’” This book has a question in a Kid’s Lit Quiz which is an international book trivia competition for school kids.
