Waterstones Says

From comedian Helen Rutter comes the hilarious yet moving story of Billy Plimpton, who is desperate to make it as a stand-up comic - despite the fact that he has a pronounced stammer. 

Signed Bookplate Edition

A standard edition is available here.

A laugh-out-loud, against-all-odds triumph of a story: the funniest debut of 2021

Billy Plimpton is an eleven-year-old boy with a big dream. He wants to be a stand-up comedian when he grows up: delivering pinpoint punch-lines and having audiences hang on his every hilarious word. A tough career for anyone, but surely impossible for Billy, who has a stammer. How will he find his voice, if his voice won't let him speak?

The idea for this story came from Helen Rutter's son, who has a stammer: she wanted to write the book that he would love to read, starring a child like him.
