About the Book

Jake wants it all. His birthday list is longer than an anaconda and there’s no way he’s asking for socks or jocks. Nope, this birthday he wants a pirate, a dinosaur and a leopard! Luckily for Jake, Auntie Lyn knows just where to find all three. Packed with fun illustrations by Chris Nixon, Jake’s Gigantic List is about discovering the magic of a great story.

Praise for the book
‘Terrific for early readers of simple, illustrated chapter books.’ — The Herald Sun

‘Boys, particularly those who find books daunting, will enjoy this book.’ — Aussie Reviews

‘This is an exciting fast-paced story for beginner readers. The characters are well developed and likeable; young readers may see some of themselves in Jake. Nixon’s black and white illustrations are full of life and humour, giving the story an extra dimension.’ — Magpies

‘Gentle jokes abound, and boys especially will enjoy the idea of creating their own adventure packed birthday lists. The black and white pencil sketch illustrations by Chris Nixon add a fun dimension. Dragons, piranhas and robots are all cutely rendered in cartoon form, enticing the young reader into the joys of literacy.’ — Bookseller+Publisher
