Jake in Danger

(1999)
(A book in the Adventures of Jake series)
A Chapter Book by

 
Jake is well and truly miffed when new dog on the block, Boris, starts to get all the attention and he becomes increasingly bitter with jealousy. But when dead birds are discovered in the park and Jake is accused of the killings, and there is a real danger he may be taken away from his adoring owners, it is Boris who comes to the rescue...

The real joy of Jake in Danger, as indeed with the other Jake books that are available (Jake, Jake Again, Jake in Trouble), is that Annette Butterworth cleverly allows our hero to behave in a realistically "doggy" way, rather than taking the well worn route of giving animals purely human characteristics. This alone makes for a welcome and excellently executed addition to the Jake collection; however, the clever combination of mischief and misery, plus the careful introduction to the concepts of jealousy and true friendship make this possibly the best Jake so far. (Ages 6 to 8years) --Susan Harrison
