Funny books are brilliant, but funny books with HEART are even better.
Joey Pigza by Jack Gantos definitely fits into the latter category. Joey is always in trouble both at school and at home, as he simply can’t concentrate on anything. It’s like bees are constantly buzzing in his brain.
I’ve never met a more flawed but loveable character than Joey, or a reader that hasn’t adored him. Seriously recommended (plus there’s more in the series).
