It is not easy to write a humorous book - many children's book rely on snide, disrespectful comments to adults or sarcastic so-called witty remarks to friends to be labelled as "humorous." This book, however, has clean humor and stays within decent boundaries, without being boring or old-fashioned either. The author has managed to strike a rare and unique balance in this regard.
Jake is a loveable character and he develops from being very self-centered to having more compassion and understanding for others towards the end, which is also an admirable aspect of the book.
The theme of the story was highly original and a few surprises line the way...Jake and his science teacher accidentally switch bodies in an experiment gone awry. Jake's parents are unaware of what happened and do not believe it when Jake in his new body try to inform them, but his sister has a suspicion that there might be some truth to it. Jake used to be a troublemaker in the science class, and now he ends up having to teach the same class! I'll leave it there so I won't spoil the excitement of discovering the story for oneself...
I am getting the next book in the series and also examining other books written by the same author - I see he has a whole bunch! So you'll be hearing more from me soon...
I gave this book a five because it taught me that being a teacher is fun and hard at the same time but with the right kids it can be easier to teach kids and have fun.
I wonder how it would feel like if I was trapped in the body of someone that I do not like. After reading this book, I would think twice about making fun about someone just incase I switched bodies with him and suffer what everyone has been doing to him. I learned that everyone has feelings and we should treat them with the same amount of respect they treat us with too.
Overall, I feel that this book is suitable for people with good imaginations especially kids. If I could recommend this book to anyone, I would recommend it first to my classmates.
