Dogs Don't Tell Jokes by Louis Sachar
Dogs Don't Tell Jokes
1991, Random House, New York
This is the story of Gary W. Boone, a kid who doesn't quite fit in and tries to compensate by being the class clown. When the school is to hold a Talent Show he decides to enter to show everyone that he is funny even though they think he is just a 'goon'.
I thought this was a great book! It was funny and poignant. I could really empathise with the main character. And the jokes weren't half bad either.
