In this short chapter book that would appeal mostly to upper elementary school boys, our hero Jake and all of his classmates are enthralled with the TV show, Junior Chef. When his school decides to hold their own Junior Chef competition, Jake sets out to make the most creative meal he can think of...but of course it does not all go according to plan! I liked Jake's fearlessness and ingenuity, and how he was able to laugh off his mistakes in the end.

Jake's friend are addicted to a Junior Chef program on television. Jake hasn't thought much about it until that's all anyone talks about at school. Soon he too is hooked, and practicing cooking with Nana. when the school decides to capitalize on the show's popularity by having their own contest, Jake enters, with a half-baked idea that cause more than hilarity.

Encouraging kids to try something new, this book is the story of a budding chef. Kids will learn about some pretty fancy dishes as they practice their literacy skills. Jake may not be able to understand the various meanings of “rare,” but maybe the readers can.

I am disappointed. With the adventure. With the plot. And worst: with Chris' illustrations!
Not what you expect from the series after experiencing all the awesomeness in the previous books~
