Summary-Jake has a secret hidden in his bedroom, under the carpet. It is a game that every child knows and plays. But for Jake, there is one small difference. This game takes him to strange and wonderful worlds. He calls it hopscotch and it helps him find missing people. It helped him find Jenny.
Jake is a wizard but he doesn't have a clue.
But thats not all; Jake has yet another secret, hidden away in the attic. It's an accident, a strange object from another world. Jake has forgotten about this secret, but that's all about to change. Because this secret is about to hatch!
Jenny doesn't think Jake is weird- she likes weird. Princess Esmeralda of Salice thinks Jake should repay past mistakes. Evil wizards, kingdoms at war, chases, rescues, an offer he can't refuse...
Jake is a wizard and his life is about to get interesting.

My Review- Even though I really, really enjoyed this book I could only read a few pages at a time. I am not exactly sure why. It was a really fun read though, and was almost exciting seeing how Jake would get himself out of certain situations. It was cool imagining how these worlds would really look, almost making up your own view of it all. The author added a nice touch of love to the book as well, and showed the situation between a boy and two girls in love with him, and what happens between all of them. Not to mention, I now want a dragon as a pet! Haha.
