The book Ellray Jakes is a Rock Star is an awesome book. Ellray teaches readers to always tell the truth. In the story, Ellray steals his dad’s crystals so he can brag about them and become popular, but Ellray tells his dad that he took his crystals. You can learn from this book that when you take something you should give it back. In the story, Ellray steals his dad’s crystals but gives them back. I like when Ellray’s little sister pronounces something wrong and you have to figure out what she’s trying to say. In the story, Alfie (Ellray’s little sister) always says Ellway, wight or something like that.
I would recommend this book to first, second, and third graders who have a problem at school or at home and people who like realistic fiction. This book teaches you never to tell a lie and only tell the truth. It also teaches you to think before you speak or act and not just do things without thinking about it. If you like realistic fiction with life lessons then this is the book for you. If you think this is the for you, go get Ellray Jakes is a Rock Star NOW!
