Jake the Fake Keeps it Real
If you like Diary of a Wimpy Kid, then you are going to love Jake the Fake Keeps it Real! Based on the bright cover and funny illustrations on almost every page, I just knew I had to read it. The people have really exaggerated features, and you can tell exactly what they are thinking. For instance, I loved the character of Jake’s sister, as she’s a unicorn who poops rainbows and sparkles! There are also little puzzles and a maze for you to complete, which was great since I own the book. (If you check it out from the library, you should probably photocopy first!)
In this story, Jake fakes his way into an Music & Art Academy, but then his friend Evan helps him discover he has talent after all. This story is mostly about making you laugh (which it’s really good at!), but I think the author also wanted the reader to think about if they have any hidden talents because everybody is good at something.
I think new chapter-book readers would probably like it best. It’s a hysterical book that deals with feeling like you don’t belong in a very silly way.
