Description

 

Leonardo has been making people laugh since he was a baby – when the teacher asks him to stop being the class clown, can he do it?

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!

Class Clown

Leonardo has always been funny. Now that he’s in school, he tries his best to stop so that the class can learn. But he just can’t help being funny. Watercolour artwork enhances this tale about tickling the funny bone.
