Jake and Charlie sell newspapers Based on how well they do each day they chose a place to sleep varying from alleyways to boarding houses Often the headlines determine how well the newspapers sell When the paper starts printing stories about a telescope that allows the moon to be seen the boys start doing really well Each day the newspaper carried an article about the fantastic things that were being seen on the moon But could Jake's and Charlie's good fortune lastI find this book very unusual first because of the idea that such stories were believed and second the strangeness of the stories being told The illustrations are rather strange in and of themselves which I think matches the strangeness of the stories the newspaper printed Unfortunately I don't think the illustrations will appeal to many children although children's tastes can be very surprising The strength of this book though is the idea it presents of telling lies to make money This fits in perfectly with teaching children about media literacy and learning to uestion what one reads The illustrations could very easily turn into a discussion of what illustrations are designed to do and the abstractness of art These themes would lead me to use this book with older students I think it might confuse younger children
