Jake and the Big Hairy LieBook - 2001
Jake is about the smartest older brother a kid could have. He reads from thick books, and seems to know something about everything. He knows about planets and stars, and told me that crocodiles can't stick out their tongues, and only girl mosquitoes bite. Once he even told me how babies are born, but I don't think he was right about that.Jake likes eggs just about any way you can cook them, which I think is totally disgusting. He also gets up way too early on Saturday mornings, which means he'll be getting me up too. But outside of that, he's the best guy I could ever imagine hanging out with. We have some great adventures -- even if we do get in trouble once in a while.Jake is a very smart kid, and his brother knows it. Sometimes being smart gets you into trouble by thinking of things you shouldn't. Things that leave you feeling like a lobster in a pot of boiling water. When their dog comes home with Mrs. Wilson's dead rabbit in his mouth, the boys know they need a foolproof plan to deal with the situation.
