The Giggle Box by Patricia Schoch
Illustrated by Lisa Lowell
Children love to laugh. Well, most children do. But when Michael moves to a new school where he doesn't know anybody, he doesn't even feel much like smiling, let alone laughing.
One day, the school bus driver got very mad because everyone was making too much noise, and she changed everyone's seats. Michael found himself sitting next to Davey, who has always loved to giggle, but despite Davey's efforts, Michael just won't laugh. That is until Giggleina uses her magic to help Davey share his gift of laughter with Michael.
It has been said that laughter is the best medicine, and in a world where children face more problems and pressures than any child should ever have to, isn't it nice to know that something as simple as laughing just might make a difference?
