In July 2017, the first Funny Kid novel debuted as the #1 Australian kids' book in the market; now Max's adventures continue in the much-anticipated sequel!

Because every kid loves to laugh. For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Tom Gates and Big Nate, FUNNY KID is the mega-bestseller from author-illustrator Matt Stanton. Every kid wants to laugh, and Max is the boy who can make it happen. Or he used to be.

But something terrible has happened and Max seems to have lost his funny! Now Max is the 'Un-Funny Kid', right when he's trying to win the town talent quest! Heckling clowns, kidnapped grandpas, giant dogs called Steve, bungled police operations and the greatest stand-up comedy routine of all time are just some of the things in store for Max, Hugo, Abby and Duck on their brand new adventure. Will the real Funny Kid please stand up! Ages: 8+

Praise for FUNNY KID FOR PRESIDENT:

'a fast-paced read with an engaging protagonist. From page one, we are immediately thrown into Max Walburt's world ... Humour is injected into every page, making the story a great magnet for younger readers, including those who struggle to read independently.' CBCA READING TIME

'If you're a fan of the Wimpy Kid series this book is right up your street' MANIA MAGAZINE

'Funny Kid for President is absolutely hilarious. Like many humorous books aimed at primary to middle school students, the jokes fly thick and fast. But don't be fooled into thinking this book is about cheap laughs. Stanton has layered Funny Kid with sophisticated humour and running jokes. It makes for an exceptionally enjoyable and easy read.' TIM HARRIS, author of EXPLODING ENDINGS

'a funny junior novel, filled with comical close-ups of Max's emotional outbursts and plenty of gross situations' READPLUS
