Booktalk: First there was "American Idol." Then "America's Got Talent." Now when Maxx sees the poster for "The Funniest Kid in America," a comedy contest in Chicago, he knows destiny is calling. Ever since he was 7 years old he's wanted to be a professional stand-up comic. But it's tough trying to hone his act in front of his 4-year-old sister who doesn't get the jokes, or his best friend Maude Dolinka who DOES get the jokes but doesn't think they're funny. Not to worry: Max plans to create a video that will make him world famous. Will he leave the judges rolling in the aisles? Or will Max discover the truth of the saying: dying is easy, comedy is hard?

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786838957, Paperback)

Ever since he was little, Max Carmody has been trying to make people laugh. So when he sees a poster announcing a contest to find "The Funniest Kid in America," he knows that he has finally found his destiny. Dubbing himself "Maxx Comedy," he sets out to create the video that will gain him entry into the contest and national fame?but it isn’t quite as easy as he thought it would be. In what soon becomes a comedy of errors, Max first has to help a cow named Madonna give birth, keep a wildcat from attacking his classmates, save his best friend from getting beaten up by a jealous boyfriend, and make it all the way to Chicago with a truckload of cherries. Will Max leave them rolling in the aisles? Or will he discover, as an old actor once said, "Dying is easy; comedy is hard."
