EllRay Jakes Is Not a ChickenEllRay Jakes Is Not a Chicken by Sally Warner

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This early chapter book introduces readers to EllRay Jakes (short for Lancelot Raymond – his mom wants to be a fantasy writer, he tells us, and this is what he got stuck with). The story has plenty of humor to lighten the bullying plotline, with a resolution that feels slightly tidy but also has nice emotional complexity. Recommended to early elementary school kids.
