About the Book

Jake’s room is only slightly messy — until Dad asks him to tidy it.

He’s emptied his sock drawers and his toy cupboard and he’s dragged out all the dusty forgotten stuff from under his bed.

THIS TIME, Jake is going to do the job properly. There’s a surprise in store for Dad, but it isn’t the one Jake planned!

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
‘Jake’s predicament is realistic and heart rending, especially as he is left on his own to do it all … a very readable story for beginner readers.’ Canberra Times

‘… a comedy of escalation as the best of intentions go bad … This is an ideal short chapter novel for newly independent readers … Chris Nixon’s dynamic illustrations complement the story without getting in the way. Best of all, Jake is an endearing, likeable character with whom young readers will easily identify.’ Child Magazine

‘The latest offering from Aussie author Ken Spillman (Fremantle Press) will grab your reluctant boy readers and have them chuckling from cover to cover.’ Bright Hub
