The Scary Solo

By: Sally Rippin

Hey Jack series bk 2

Jack loves to sing and he is going to try out for a solo part in the school production. Things don’t go as planned though and his best friend Billie gets the part instead. Jack is so mad because she knew he wanted the part. Jack manages to realise his feelings aren’t good about this and manages to apologise and then help Billie practice. When the day of the concert arrives things once again go wrong and it is up to Jack to save the day.

A fun little story about getting over disappointments and supporting a friend. The text is simple and fun. Moods go up and down as Jack goes through different experiences and feelings. A good little tale about apologising and still being friends. An enjoyable read for a beginning reader.

The Crazy Cousins

By: Sally Rippin

Hey Jack series bk 1

Jack just wants to be left alone. He absolutely doesn’t want to have to play with his noisy cousins. Too bad his Dad won’t let him stay in his room. When Jack does go out to play he discovers something that changes his whole attitude.

This is the first book in the Hey Jack series. Jack is a fun little boy who is a bit moody, but that’s fine because everyone gets a little moody sometimes. This series is a companion series to the Billie B Brown series, Jack and Billie are best friends. In style and format they are the same – large print with simple, easy to follow story lines that are fun to read. An ideal book to look at when looking for something to interest beginning readers.
