Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Ricky Vargas is considered to be the funniest kid in the world. But how would anyone really know for sure if they have never met each and every kid in the whole wide world? Well, basically that is beside the point. Needless to say, Rick Vargas is a very funny kid. He tells hilarious jokes, pokes fun of himself, and is generally well-liked. But, one day Ricky became very serious. He wore a suit to school, he read the paper, and was not funny at all during class time. It was up to all of the students to devise a plan to get Ricky cracking them up once again. Another story has Ricky preparing for the school talent contest. All of the competitors are sure he will win. But, Ricky spends his time using the jokes he would need to have for his stage presence. As a result he is wondering why no one is laughing. This three part tale of this very silly character is a quick read and predominately aimed at boys. Short sentences and cartoon illustrations will have any beginner reader flipping through the pages over and over. The back of the book has jokes readers can share with friends and family as they embark on their journey to becoming the funniest kid in the world. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard
