by Craig Robinson and Adam Mansbach, illustrated by Keith Knight - £5.50 Random House USA Children (2018)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780553523546 | ISBN 10: 0553523546
Jake can barely play an instrument, not even a kazoo. And his art? It's better suited for Pictionary than Picasso.
Which is a real problem because Jake just faked his way into the Music and Art Academy for the gifted and talented (and Jake is pretty sure he is neither). More jokester than composer, Jake will have to think of something quick before the last laugh is on him.
Featuring more than 160 illustrations, Jake the Fake is sure to bring the laughs with his hilarious high jinks!
Recommended for readers aged 8-12.
