Jacky Ha-Ha: A Graphic Novel (A Jacky Ha-Ha Graphic Novel, 1)

Adapted from James Patterson's #1 New York Times bestselling series, this hilarious and heartwarming graphic novel introduces Jacky Ha-Ha, a class clown who makes people laugh with her so they can't laugh at her!

With her irresistible urge to tell a joke in every situation--even when it's a bad idea--Jacky Ha-Ha loves to make people laugh. And cracking wise helps distract her from thinking about not-so-funny things in her life, like her mom serving in a dangerous, faraway war, and a dad who's hardly ever home.

But no matter how much fun Jacky has, she can't entirely escape her worries. So one starlit night, she makes a promise to keep her family together...even if she has to give up the one thing that makes her happy. But can she stop being Jacky Ha-Ha, if that's who she really is?  Bright, funny, and fast-paced artwork will have readers laughing their way through Jacky's ha-ha-heartwarming story!

I enjoyed the book very much. I had purchased the book for my niece who will be 10 next month. However I believe it will be better and more help to her understanding for the material at 12. Good reading materials for parents of pretend and how they see and interpret parents lives.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Mr. Patterson has been a long time favorite of mine, but with joy I can say he has now crossed over as a favorite author in this household to my 10 yr old daughter and 9 yr old son. As an already committed fan, I purchased this book with enthusiasm for my own Jackie. I was sure the title and the relatable home state of NJ would engage her. Well, that was an understatement. We received the book on a Sunday and by Tuesday my daughter was (without persuasion) 27 chapters deep into the book! As a mom that encourages reading constantly to keep up with the rigid new demands of school required book logs, seeing her reading so enthusiastically, made me so PROUD! Happy to say that her eagerness and excitement about the book caught on with her curious younger brother. During our normal bedtime reading routine, he was just as engaged as she read out loud. Neither of the 2 wanted the reading to end. I must admit Jacky is a very likable character and Mr. Patterson's reading style had me captivated too, especially as Jacky and her best friend Meredith stroll the Seaside Heights boardwalk and describe some of my favorite foods. yummmmm Funny, relatable, modern, descriptive, heart felt, Jacky Ha-Ha is all of that and then some. Give your young reader the wonderful opportunity to discover what is underneath the surface of Jacky's clownish ways. I truly believe it will be an enjoyable, page turning adventure.
I’m an adult and this is such a beautiful read. I wish more kids comics were this warm, innocent and entertaining to read. I highly recommend it.

My daughter is 13 and she loves graphic novels. I ordered this one for her because she loved the original Jackie ha ha novel. She loves this one too! Good addition to our library.
