Class Clown

Robert Munsch tells the story of a funny first-grader who is a distraction to his classmates.

Robert Munsch

Leonardo has been funny since he was born: he was a funny baby, he was a funny toddler, he was a funny first-grader. But now, his teacher Mrs. Gomez asks him to stop being funny so that the class can learn. He tries his best, but he just has to make a funny face, then tell a funny joke and then show a funny drawing — with predictable results. And when he finally seriously promises faithfully never to be funny again, he makes the teacher laugh so hard she falls down on the floor laughing! (From Scholastic Canada Ltd.)
