Eight-year-old EllRay Jakes is sick of getting picked on. But every time he tries to defend himself against class bully Jared Matthews, EllRay is the one who winds up in trouble. It's just not fair Then his dad offers him a deal: If EllRay can stay out of trouble for a week, they'll go to Disneyland But being good for one whole week is not so easy. . . .
This humorous and true-to-life story kicks off the EllRay series, which is just right for boys (and girls ) who are beginning to read chapter books.
