Comments EllRay Jakes Walks the Plank

  • Holly

    I read this book because my daughter is now teaching third grade in the Mississippi Delta. As we were looking for books for her classroom library, we couldn't help but notice that most of the books had white kids on the covers. EllRay is an African American third grader who is tasked with taking care of the class pet (a goldfish)over spring break. When his baby sister over feeds the fish and it dies, EllRay takes the blame for her. Next thing you know he is taking the blame for everything! The m [...]

    The juvenile fiction world really needs EllRay Jakes! He's a typical third grader with universal kid problems. In this volume, his little sister accidentally kills the class goldfish, he forgets to bring back "Treasure Island," and he has all kinds of problems with class bully Cynthia Harbison. EllRay is an important character because he happens to be African American. I can tell you that this is the kind of story many black families have been asking for at my library: a story about a two-parent [...]

    When EllRay Jakes takes his new class mascot "Zip", the goldfish, home to take care of him over Spring Break his little sister accidentally overfeeds him and he ends up floating in the bowl. When Monday comes around he has to figure out a way to to tell his class that he killed Zip and hopefully they won't hate him. As the week goes on things seem to go from bad to worse, and Ellray continues to think of himself as the "Class Messup". Will he ever be anything more than a kid who constantly makes [...]

    Did I enjoy reading this book? I can't truthfully say I did. However, this is the second chapter book my six-year-old has deigned to read, and as such, I think it deserves some stars. My son found the story engaging enough to make it through all eighteen (short) chapters in four days. This makes me very happy. I read the book through when he was done. Although I was not impressed by either literary merit or plot, it was mostly harmless. My only content complaints: poop is mentioned once, and Ell [...]

    Third grade is not going too well lately for Ellray Jakes. When his little sister overfeeds the class goldfish, and it dies, he takes the blame. Things go from bad to worse as he forgets the class read aloud, Treasure Island, and is involved in a couple of dust-ups with the class bully Cynthia. When Cynthia tries to persuade him to take the blame for an incident with their teacher's records so that her reputation for perfection will remain spotless, Ellray figures he might as well go ahead and d [...]

    Today I read Ellray Jakes Walks the Plank. I think it’s a drama book because there is no comedy, adventure or tragedy. It could be a tragedy because a fish died. I liked it when the teacher forgave Ellray because it was nice of the teacher to forgive him. It was funny that Cynthia was wrong when she thought she was right. It was strange that there is a kind of tag called octopus tag. If I could add on to the book it would be Cynthia was right and Ellray got in trouble. The conflict was that th [...]

    Another nice addition to this series about a hapless third grader who, in this book, can't seem to get a break. (The book begins with him responsible for the death of his classroom’s pet goldfish.) I'd recommend this to fans of Roscoe Riley, Andy Shane, and George Brown (the one difference being that Ellray is African-American). These books are humorous and sophisticated enough to still appeal to actual third graders, but are also a great choice for those advanced younger readers.

    I really love Ellray. The characters and problem are realistic. It's nice to find a early chapter book that features a strong boy character. Ellray worries about the typical things most third graders worry about. He is funny, but has a big heart. I love his relationship with his 4 year old sister.


  • Marilee Haynes

    My seven-year-old son who is a hugely voracious reader and a big fan of realistic fiction loved getting to know Ellray. He was really excited to keep reading - past his bedtime :) - and started asking for the next book in the series before he finished the first. I consider that more than two thumbs up!


  • Mel Raschke

    Cute story about a boy that takes home the class goldfish and the teacher's read aloud for story time. He returns with a dead fish (his sister overfed it) and he cannot find the book to return to the teacher. Cynthia the class bully goes nuts and Ellray is sure he is going to have to walk the plank. Great humor.

    Third-grader Ellray is a boy I would love to have in my class. He is precious just like geodes. I have to think about how I'm going to get students to read this, have to be careful about the death issue.


  • katsok

    Things aren't going well for Ellray. He feels like he's becoming the kid that always messes up. I think several students would relate to Ellray.


  • Jessica

    Cute & good for young boys


  • Dayna
