Jack has to leave his class to go to the special spelling group.

Not everyone has to go.

What if the other kids make fun of him?



Jack is feeling very excited and proud of himself. He has received ‘The Star of the Week’ for his improved reading and his reward is to introduce and meet the soccer star Tim Little, who is going to visit their school.

But when Jack sees his friend Aaron so upset and his dog dying, he has an idea that he thinks will cheer him up.

The Hey Jack series has wonderful, simple story lines that your young students can re-ally relate to and this title is no exception. It highlights caring and thinking about your friends, which are wonderful characteristics to have!
