My Life as a Stuntboy

My Life as a Stuntboy by Janet Tashjian with cartoons by Jake Tashjian


In My Life As A Stuntboy the main character: Derek, is doing stunts. Then a stuntman named Tony hires Derek for a stunt job in a movie after seeing his stunts. Derek befriends the famous actor Tanya Billings. His capuchin monkey:Frank, is then kidnapped or monkey napped by the school bully: Scooter. Then Derek,Tanya,Matt [Dereks best friend], and Dereks tutor go to save Frank. Derek does an amazing stunt where he climbs a shelved wall and saves Frank. In the end they save Frank and make it back to the movie set in time for Tanya’s scene and Dereks final stunt on set. After that everything was back to normal for Derek and his friends.

My favorite part of My Life As A Stuntboy was when Derek climbed up a shelved wall to save Frank. He climbed over 40 shelves just to save his monkey. This was my favorite part because it had a lot of action.
