Jonny Jakes Investigates the Hamburgers of Doom by Malcolm Judge

Jonny Jakes Investigates the Hamburgers of Doom is a preview copy from NetGalley.

Jonny Jakes is the secret founder of the banned secret school newspaper.  He sneaks around, takes photos, then writes articles about what has happened.  But one day, he goes too far and the principal quits his job.  The school board is looking for a new principal and finally they find one.  Jonny and his friends go in to find out who the principal is and post it on the newspaper before the principal is introduced.  But his picture is blurry and he is too late to tell all the kids in school.  Jonny knows there is something unusual about the new principal.  He's handing out special candy and all the kids are eating are hamburgers!  What is going on in the school?  It's up to Jonny to find out.

I really like this book because it was a combination of an adventure and a mystery story.  I like how the hamburgers actually look really bad, but all the kids are eating them anyhow.  It's cool how Jonny Jakes is hanging down off the side of the school, all to find out who the new principal might be.

  1. My son John is planning on reading this soon (we have one other book to do first). Sounds like one we'll enjoy!
