For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate comes the second book in the side-splitting series about a class clown faking his way to comedy stardom from comedian and film star Craig Robinson, #1 New York Times bestselling author Adam Mansbach, and NAACP History Maker recipient and cartoonist Keith Knight.
No one is more surprised than Jake when he impresses at the Music & Art Academy talent show with a few off-the-cuff wisecracks. This class clown finally found his callingand he isn’t ready to step away from the lime light, yet.
But Jake’s new ego is no laughing matter. When he starts blowing off his friends to pursue "his art," his big head becomes a big bummer.
Plus, it turns out being the funny man actually is hard work. Luckily, Jake has mentor Maury Kovalski, the Mr. Miyagi of comedybut more unhinged, to show him the ropes. But this old-timer will need to teach Jake a thing or two about humorand humilitybefore Jake loses all his biggest fans and best friends!
Featuring more than 200 illustrations, Jake the Fake stuns again with greater gags and guffaws than before!
