So will he survive the wrath of Jared and Stanley,or will they get on his last nerve?Read EllRay Jakes is Not a Chicken,to find out.
I liked EllRay Jakes is Not a Chicken, because EllRay has a bully (Jared) and I can easily relate to EllRay, because I used to have a kindergarten bully. Another reason I enjoyed this is because EllRay’s friend stood up for EllRay, which made me feel good. The last reason why is EllRay had to spend a whole week with Jared at Disneyland, and that gave me a big laugh.
I recommend this book to kids that like to read books that have multiple things happening at the same time.
