Girls are funny. Now it's time for the world to know it.
COMING MAY 9, 2017!
Funniest. Stories. Ever.
Funny Girl is a collection of uproarious stories, rollicking comics, rib-tickling wit, and more, from 25 of today’s funniest female writers for kids, including a brand new funny story from Lisa Graff!
Read stories about Ursula Brown’s grandmother driving her on a road trip to disaster, Lisa Brown’s little brother getting a Tic-Tac stuck up his nose, and Carmen Agra Deedy’s mom setting the bathtub on fire. Read Rita Williams-Garcia's story about two besties hatching a bird-brained scheme to get on to a TV talk show, or Deborah Underwood's contribution about a dynamic dog-and-cat duo teaming up on a pet advice column. Or maybe you'd like to read Lisa Graff's tale of a bra, a toilet, and the most disgusting afternoon ever...
With clever contributions from award-winning and bestselling authors including Cece Bell, Sophie Blackall, Libba Bray, Shannon Hale, and Raina Telgemeier, this anthology of funny girls will make you laugh until you cry.
