Most children love funny and exciting books about animals so it is wonderful to see the story of Jake, the unusual dog with a zest for live who likes to save the day, reappear into print. Only this time, he appears in colour for the first time with illustrations by the author’s husband Nick Butterworth, one of the UK’s biggest and best names in children’s book illustration. Jake in Action and Jake the Good Bad Dog are published simultaneously. This one finds Jake digging up the roses, eating too much chocolate and ready for a game of football in the park until he discovers that the Council wants to sell the park for building. It just can’t happen.

If you enjoyed this then follow Jake on some more adventures in Jake in Danger and Jake a Friend Indeed

Synopsis

Jake In Action by Annette Butterworth

Jake is back again, digging up the roses, eating too much chocolate and always ready for a game of football. But the football pitch is threatened – the Council want to sell Jake’s park and build on it! Everyone is determined to save the park, but it seems their luck is out. Jake is a very special dog - but can he save the day?

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!
