Two funny, unlikely friends--a thoughtful, deliberate sloth and an impulsive, impatient fox--make their big debut in this hilarious new picture book celebrating friendship and the wonderful ways in which we're all different. Best friends Jasper and Ollie decide to go to the pool. On your mark, get set . . . WAIT As Jasper races ahead--crashing into the mailman, speeding past the ice cream truck--Ollie takes his sweet time, pausing to admire a butterfly, smell a daisy, and help the mailman pick up his letters With a clever design that shows Jasper's hectic rush compared with Ollie's casual stroll, this hilarious and visual story allows young readers to easily recognize the differences between the two pals. It's a smartly paced, hugely funny celebration of our differences. Kids AND grown-ups will giggle as they decide if they're more of a "Jasper" or an "Ollie." It's also a great way to share the concept of "taking time to smell the roses"--a perfect lesson in our overly scheduled world. And look for book two from this exciting new author-illustrator, coming in summer 2020: Jasper & Ollie Build a Fort. "Forget the tortoise and the hare, this tale of friendship between an unhurried sloth and a wild fox is a funnier version of those famous opposites, and one that will have kids wondering whether they're more like the deliberate Ollie or the frenetic Jasper."--ReadBrightly.comBinding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Alex WillanPublisher: Doubleday Books for Young ReadersPublished: 05/28/2019ISBN: 9780525645214Pages: 40Weight: 0.90lbsSize: 11.10h x 8.90w x 0.50dReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 03/01/2019Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 05/01/2019School Library Journal 05/01/2019 pg. 89Accelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 503316 / Jasper & OllieReading Level: 1.2 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
