Jake Drake, Class Clown

Series: Jake Drake
by Andrew Clements Illustrated by Dolores Avendano

Knock, knock. Who's there? Jake. Jake who? Jake Drake, class clown.

Miss Bruce is the new student teacher in Jake's class, and she never smiles. Never. But when Jake cracks up the class during a spelling bee, he sees the tiniest hint of a smile at the corner of her mouth. Suddenly, Jake has a new mission in life: to be so funny that even Miss Bruce will laugh!

But then things get out of hand, and Jake finds himself in big trouble. Has Jake discovered — too late — that not everybody loves a clown?
