"The Funny Guy"
by Grace Allen Hogarth

[children's fiction]
In Joan M. Lexau's "The Trouble With Terry,"
Terry reads a book that is both happy and sad
about a girl named Helen who "always doing things
wrong, just like Terry."
I wonder if that book was "The Funny Guy."
It definitely fits the description!
