    ARC provided by Young Adult Books CentralJimmy loves to read, and loves recommending books to his friends, especially his friend Maxine He loves books SO MUCH that he has decided to make books himself Of course, he will need an awesome factory in order to do this, which will take a lot of money, and this is hard to gather when you are in middle school This doesn t stop Jimmy, though He quickly writes stories, prints them out, and gets a copy made so that he can share it His friend Rafe even does some illustrations He tries several different ways to obtain funding for his venture, but gets laughed out of the bank even though the people there find his story amusing Eventually, his friend Hailey introduces him to the wealthy Yingerlingers who finally realize what a brilliant idea Jimmy has, and help him make his dream come true Jimmy s insistence on following his dreams also helps his parents to reduce their work hours and embrace their own passions and also provides books for kids that they will actually want to read Jimmy mentions a huge range of books that he enjoys reading, and it would be great if readers who follow his story with amusement were to hunt down titles such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory or A Wrinkle in Time These are great books that don t have a huge current fan base, so it would be fantastic if this book created a new fan base for them Jeff Ebbeler s illustrations are a nice change from other illustrators Patterson has used, and hit the sweet spot between goofy and sophisticated for middle school There are a lot of fun details in the pictures, and he does a great job of capturing the personalities of a wide range of characters I especially like the way that he visually translates that changes that Jimmy s parents undergo Fans of Patterson s other middle grade novels will be vastly amused at the parade of characters from other titles that appear in Jimmy s world Everyone from Jamie Grimm from the I Funny Books to Hailey from Word of Mouse shows up, although sometimes it s hard to tell which characters are from other titles or appear in real life Are the Yingerlingers real, and if so, will they give my library money This book blurs the line between fiction and reality, and offers a humorous explanation for the new jimmy imprint being introduced by prolific author James Patterson Jimmy s love for books is as intense as it is endearing, and his message to work hard to make one s dreams come true cannot be contested Laugh Out Loud is a must read for fans of this author s many humorous and engaging middle grade novels This was a bit too self referential for my taste, but my students will enjoy it.

    Those of us who Love the I, Funny series will really like this story Set in SAN JOSE, California, where the Silicon Valley entrepreneurial spirit and examples are legendary, this story is about a young middle school student who loves to read Jimmy recommends books to his friends, but, through a spiraling number of attempts to start his own business, seizes on the idea of launching a kid run book factory out of a garage, with the idea that he will become rich through making his own book company Short chapters go from one minor misadventure to another, while his parents face repercussions with their employers and the IRS as his business scheme grows Interactions with school librarians, teachers, and friends make this a funny middle school story to appeal to readers of the Big Nate series or Patterson s and Grabenstein s books Middle School titles are name dropped freely hopefully some of this book s readers will follow up and read widely as a result Sunny California s rare downpour of rain foils Jimmy s plans, seriously impacting his inventory, but the plucky guy s spirits do not dampen Spoiler alert What comes next Jimmy boldly pitches his kids book company project to a billionaire couple s company in Marin County which fund startup businesses When they find out by coincidence that a favorite niece is one of Jimmy s ardent supporters, they fund his project Jimmy s family will build a new book production facility for kids that s run by kids and started by kids, on the condition that he change the name from Laugh out Loud to Jimmy Books, because the funders state, basically, that the new company s mission to make sure children are having fun reading is too important to promote as a laughing matter.

    Reading this book was like hanging out with a good friend I loved the story and how every Jimmy book that I have read was revealed I loved the quest of the kids to make their dreams come true I also laughed at the parents trying to rekindle their dreams, the IRS, the Lucky Charms eating billionaires, etc that make it fun for an adult to read I m grateful that there are books like these that I can put in the hands of readers.

    Where do I even begin This is a blatant example of author self indulgence that doubles as an advertisement for James Patterson s Jimmy books Real world expies of characters in the many middle grade James Patterson books abound, along with gratuitous references to other, better books that Patterson and his ghostwriters took no part in writing Compared with every book that was referenced over the course of this story, the plot of Laugh Out Loud was vapid and completely over the top in the worst possible way The protagonist would often veer off into a random, silly tangent right in the middle of narration I had the pleasure of reading about aliens, a Harry Potter fantasy, and two stock caricatures of unsupportive parents suddenly doing a complete 180 and making reckless, out of character decisions in order to create tension in the second act On top of that, pretty much every character with a disability was presented atrociously Jamie Grimm s real world counterpart was a stranger who provided Jimmy with some blatant inspiration porn exactly once, and Maddie s seemed like a plot device than a person If I could have every copy of this book drenched in a freak California rainstorm without looking like a deranged lunatic, I would do it in a heartbeat, but this is real life, so I ll have to settle for advising Goodreads users against wasting their time on this It s not even funny The book is called Laugh Out Loud and it isn t funny Let that sink in Then go pick literally any other Jimmy series in your local bookstore and read that instead.
