My 3rd grade son just read this book and LOVED it. It introduced him to how a science fair works and taught him about the scientific method - observation, question, hypothesis, method, result, conclusion. However, this wasn't just a dull science story. The author uses a lot of humor and there were several underlying themes in the story.
Jake Drake really wants to win first prize (a Hyper-Cross-Functional Bluntium Twelve Computer System)at the science fair. To do so, he shuns his best friend who wants to be his partner on the project because Jake doesn't want to share the prize. When his friend decides to drop out of the contest because the class "know-it-alls" have been flaunting their projects and he knows he won't win, Jake realizes that he's not having fun working alone on his project and invites his friend to be his partner. Suddenly, the project becomes fun and winning doesn't seem to matter any more. The result...sorry, you'll have to read the book!

I read the book Jake Drake Know-it all.
I thought that this book was a ok book .I think that the story line is a little bit young of a book for a kid my age it is more for kids from 6 to 8 years old that like science math and and computers and is a pretty good reader and speller. This book is about a kid that love's computer.
