Jasper John Dooley: Star of the Week
Disclosure – SCM (SocialCafe Magazine) was provided FREE product(s) to complete this review.
Jasper John Dooley: Star of the Week is the first in a series of chapter books featuring a charismatic and funny central character. An only child with active, loving parents (and a most impressive lint collection), Jasper John Dooley is a true original.
At last, it’s Jasper John Dooley’s turn to be Star of the Week at school. Unfortunately, nothing turns out as planned. His Show and Tell falls flat. A new baby at his friend Ori’s house steals his spotlight. And worst of all, the new baby has only child Jasper wondering if his own family is too small. When Jasper decides to build himself a brother (named Earl) out of wood, Earl’s schoolyard shenanigans send Jasper to the principal’s office! But with a little help from family and friends, things turn around for Jasper. And by the time Friday arrives, he is once again sure that he has what it takes to be a star.
We absolutely love Jasper and this book. The writing is so clear and well though out that it makes this book complex, but without being complicated and both kind and adults can enjoy it. We are so excited that this is the first book in the series and can’t wait to read more about Jasper.
