Jack the homework eater by Mitt Ray

Goodreads Summary: Alex is scared of dogs. He gets really angry with his parents, when they adopt a British Bulldog called Jack. He tries his best to avoid Jack the Bulldog. But then he learns a secret about Jack. He learns that Jack is no ordinary dog, Jack’s a homework eater. This special ability of Jack to eat homework helps him earn Alex’s affection.

My views: This is my very first children’s book for review given by the author himself.

Jack the homework eater is a cute little story about Jack, the bulldog who loves to eat paper.

Good things-

  • Nice concept.
  • An interesting story.
  • A good lesson for children to learn.
    Relatable character, Jack that kids will adore.

  • Not so good-

  • The practical aspects of the story are non-existent. But perhaps children do not go into the practical aspects and the details would not pinch them as much as they pinched me.
  • Editing is immensely required. However, again children may choose to ignore the errors.
    The story is a bit long for children to keep on reading. It could have been shorter and crisper.

  • In all, the book may appeal to children, especially those who love to avoid homework (I think that does include every child 😉 ). The book would serve as a good bedtime story told over a few days.

    2 stars- It was OK.



    Often seen with a nose buried in a book, you might spy me at a library while 500 unread books adorn my shelf. At other times, I'm busy travelling solo, eating out or looking for my new escapades. You will always find me doing too much all at once.

    Your comments make my day. I read them all. :) Note: This blog is an Award-Free Zone.
