Hey Jack! The Backyard Mystery - Sally Rippin
Kids LOVE Hey Jack! Join in with this hilarious blockbuster series from the award-winning Sally Rippin, author of the Billie B Brown and School of Monsters series!
Jack has found some insect eggs in his backyard. He can’t wait for them to hatch. But what’s inside?
Jack is a friendly, everyday kid who loves playing soccer and always tries to be brave. Each down-to-earth story in the series follows Jack on a fun new adventure that kids will love and relate to.
Each book is carefully designed with word art and illustrations, and there are no mountains of text or super-tricky words to intimidate the early reader. So join the fun and read along!
Billie's best friend is Jack. Even though they are very different, they do everything together and always stand up for each other.
Jack can sometimes be a little shy, but he is the perfect balance to Billie's confident personality. Where she might rush into things without thinking, he is always cautious and thoughtful.
Sally wrote the Jack books as an alternative to all the action hero and funny books most often created for boys, and to help them find ways to explore their feelings. In order to bring up kind and empathetic boys, Sally believes it's vital to offer well-rounded characters for boys to see themselves in or model themselves on.
Like the Billie books, the Jack books are accessible and easy to read, but with enticing storylines to hook kids in.
