The Boy Who Made Everyone Laugh

Billy and dog on blue - Edited.jpg

Billy Plimpton.

My name is Billy Plimpton. I tell the best jokes in town and when I'm older, I want to be a stand up comedian. But there's only one problem: I have a stammer.

How can I find my voice when my voice won't let me speak?

Skyla Norkins

My name is Skyla and I love to draw. I don't have many friends at school and my mum spends a lot of time in bed, so Billy and his jokes really cheer me up.


Chloe Plimpton

My name is Chloe and I am Billy's little sister. I love unicorns and ponies. I go to dance and gymnastics and love to cheer people on with my poms poms. Billy is an OK big brother, I suppose. He can be annoying sometimes but he really makes me laugh.

Mr Osho

My name is Mr Osho. I am a teacher at Bannerdale School and I love my job so much. I have a pug dog called Terence and I play the trumpet. I run a lunchtime club called Mr Osho's music lounge, where I play all of my favourite records.

Record Player


My name is Ellie. I have red hair, which I used to hate, but now I love. I spend most of my time at my mum's house but I go and visit my dad too. I love my dad, but I'm not so keen on my stupid stepbrothers!

The Regulars

We are Josh, Matthew and Alex and, with Billy, we are 'The Regulars' - the best (and only) jazz band Bannerdale has ever seen. We also love playing board games and making each other laugh.

William Blakemore

My name is William and everyone thinks that I'm a bully. They don't know anything about me though. If they knew what my life was like they would think differently.

Granny Bread

My name is Granny Bread. I love my grand kids so much, especially when they visit me and make me laugh. My favourite animal is an octopus - I think they are wonderful!
