Jake's Monster Mess
Written by Ken Spillman and illustrated by Chris Nixon
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!
