This series is subtitled "The Adventures of Jake - The Best Dog in the World"! Jake is a very special dog who lives with the Foster family. He loves chasing ducks, digging up roses and playing football. There are around 8 - 10 chapters in each book and Nick Butterworth's lovely illustrations are throughout (not on every page though).
My 5 year old has just read Jake in Action from cover to cover and really enjoyed it! He likes animal stories and this one has Jake the dog getting into enough scrapes to make it funny and he saves the day at the end! The illustrations are delightful, anyone familiar with Percy the Park Keeper will enjoy these books afterwards.
A few years ago, I read all five of the Jake books and I thought that they were all really cleverly written. The books are both hilarious and tear jerking. I would highly recommend the Jake series to children of all ages. Books in the series
