Get ready to Laugh Out Loud (a lot!) with James Patterson's newest illustrated middle grade story!
Jimmy loves reading so much that he's inspired to start a book company for kids--run by kids. It's a bit dream for a twelve-year-old boy--some would even say it's laugh-out-loud ridiculous!
But that doesn't stop Jimmy from dreaming even bigger! His company will be as imaginative and fun as Willy Wonka's chocolate factory...with a Ferris wheel instead of an elevator, a bowling alley in the break room, and a river filled with floating books! He just has to believe in himself and his idea. (And maybe win the Lotto.)
In this hilarious story filled with clever references to children's book favorites, James Patterson shows young readers that anything can be achieved if you believe in yourself no matter what!
"Crowd-pleasing... Patterson and Grabenstein are on their way to cornering the middle grade market, and this meta peek behind the curtain should be a hit."
"Patterson and Grabenstein emphasize that dreams can come true if you take action and never give up. Fans and educators alike will appreciate the many kid lit authors and titles mentioned throughout. A humorous adventure with a positive message."
—School Library Journal
