The Lovereading4Kids comment

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.

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.

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!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
