For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate comes the first book in a side-splitting illustrated series from comedian and film star Craig Robinson, #1 New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach, and NAACP History Maker recipient and cartoonist Keith Knight.   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!

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Jake showcases an unforgettable kid whose imagination will blow your mind. Essence
Jake wouldn't worry about making it through sixth grade if he knew the all-star team he has behind his adventures. The laughs you'll have reading this book are definitely not fake! Jeffrey Brown, author of Lucy & Andy Neanderthal and Jedi Academy
Everything about this book is funny. OK, maybe not the page numbers. But the words and pictures are hilarious; I laughed until boogers came out of my nose. (Don't worry, I put them back.) Dave Barry, author of Worst Class Trip Ever
Robinson and Mansbach amp up the laughs in this wry novel. Booklist
A fast and funny alternative to the Wimpy Kid. Kirkus Reviews
“It’s hard to make a comic that is this funny while also so frequently profound…This is the work of a master.” Dave Eggers, New York Times bestselling author
“Narrator Sullivan Jones’s unique narrative style easily complements the story. His smooth transitions and distinguishable character voices draw listeners into Jake’s world. The plot is engaging and humorous…A solid addition to any library audio collection serving middle graders.” Library Journal (audio review)
“A slightly edgy spoof of touchy-feely, experiential education..A supporting cast of quirky art-school types rounds out this offbeat novel.” Publishers Weekly
