Another welcome return for Jamie Grimm, wisecracking wheelchair-using star of best-selling author James Patterson’s Middle School series for kids. In this episode Jamie is off to Hollywood to take part in the national finals of the Planet’s Funniest Kid Comic Competition, having won various local and national heats along the way. All this success has gone to Jamie’s head though. Given that he’s always the butt of his own jokes, Jamie is going to have to have to learn to laugh at himself again to be in with a chance of winning the competition. Fortunately, his friends and family are there to help him do just that. Jamie’s voice rings loud and true as ever, the various different plot lines are easy to follow and it all comes together in another heart-warming climax.
