Debuts as the No. 1 Australian Children's Book!

Every kid wants to laugh, but Max Walburt is the boy who can make it happen.

He’s the class clown, the punch line and he’s even volunteered his bottom to be the butt of the joke. 

Max is the funny kid … and he’s running for class president.

Poop-scandals, stalker-ducks, surprise-debates, psycho-sports-teachers, tell-all-interviews and the great-library-vomit-a-geddon are just some of the things in store for Max and his friends at Redhill Middle School this election season. 

For fans of Diary of Wimpy Kid, Tom Gates and Big Nate, FUNNY KID is the hilarious new series from bestselling children's author Matt Stanton.
