'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.
