Third-grader Jake Drake has always been good with computers. Now the local computer store is sponsoring his elementary school's science fair. The grand prize is a brand-new computer, so Jake is more than ready to get started on his project. But first he needs an idea. And maybe a partner, too. Jake Drake Know-It-All is the second addition to Andrew Clements' series, which began with Jake Drake Bully Buster. Filled with characters and situations that all school-aged children will identify with, Clements' good-natured Jake Drake books are perfect first chapter books. Imparting a message of the value of teamwork and friendship, Jake Drake Know-It-All will fascinate listeners of all ages. Narrator Johnny Heller keeps the pace just right as Jake makes his scientific discoveries.

"For all the satisfaction that a finely crafted science fair project can provide, the flip side frequently involves competition, strained friendships, and misunderstandings. Clements once again shares the pitfalls and the pleasures of a perennial school event. Johnny Heller narrates Jake skillfully. When Jake is confident, he is; when Jake is angry with his father's usurping of the project, 222 helps Jake explain his feelings in the situation, and when Jake wrestles with bringing joie back into his work, 444 and Willie are there to be included. In addition, he provides just enough variety to voice Jake's parents, the yellow coated Lenny Cordo, prize master, and the understanding teacher Mrs. Snavin. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
