Jasper & Ollie


First Release:

August 2019

ISBN: 9780525645221

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.

Full-color illustrations.
