    Cute story of two friends who decide to go to the pool Jasper the fox gets there super fast then irritates everyone by asking them if they've seen Ollie Ollie meanwhile being a sloth ambles his way to the pool

  2. Rod Brown says:

    I like the slow and thoughtful sloth Ollie but the hyperactive and inconsiderate fox dominated the story and got on my nerves uickly The balance was just off and the fox went way too far past simple mischief otherwise this might have been pretty good

    Jasper the fox wants to go to the pool Ollie the sloth agrees Jasper races Ollie there only to realize that he's nowhere to be found when he gets to the pool Jasper displays many inappropriate behaviors as he tries to locate Ollie In the end Jasper gets kicked out of the public pool just as Ollie shows up Children will enjoy pointing out what Ollie is doing while Jasper is racing around

    Jasper and Ollie are best friends At breakfast Jasper wants to go to the pool and Ollie agrees Jasper the fox wants to race to get there and runs out of the house Along the way he pull on his swimsuit blows past the mailman who dumps his letters jumps over a turtle painting a fence and hustles past the ice cream truck Now Jasper has to wait for Ollie though And Ollie the sloth has a very different approach He watches butterflies smells the flowers picks up the spilled mail gets a drink helps paint the fence and gets an ice cream cone Meanwhile Jasper is rushing around trying to see if Ollie is somewhere at the pool and manages to get himself thrown out Luckily that is just when Ollie arrives with ice cream cones for both of themWillan tells this story solely in speech bubbles He uses framing techniues from comic books to great effect here On the larger upper frame he shows Jasper in his speedy desperation to find Ollie Below Ollie moves along uietly enjoying his walk to the pool Jasper is often accompanied by a dashed line showing his movement over and under and around people and obstacles and usually accompanied by chaos in his wakeThe illustrations are brilliantly done with plenty of humor too It has a wonderful aesthetic to it where the pattern of Ollie’s swimsuit is repeated on various things at the pool that Jasper searches The illustrations are worth looking closely at to catch all of the funny moments and small touches along the wayA combination of speed and sloth that makes for a great friendship and plenty of laughs Appropriate for ages 3 5

    Jasper the fox and Ollie the sloth are friends and complete opposites Ollie likes to take his time while Jasper is impatient and maybe a little hyperactive When Jasper and Ollie decide to spend a day at the pool their differences are on full display Jasper wins the race to the pool and assumes that Ollie is already there Meanwhile the reader sees Ollie taking his time slowly making his way to the pool Jasper's antics will have kids in stitches and they will spend a lot of time looking over the detailed illustrations This was a lot of fun to read and is perfect for anyone in need of a summer themed laugh

    First of all I have had a LOT of Jaspers in my classroom over the years Excitement and energy that is so strong they simply can't control it With Ollie as his best friend though Jasper is able to occasionally take it down a notch I think this book would be fun to compare and contrast with the Tortoise and the Hare with older grades Also I really like the split screen effect to see just how Jasper Ollie both get to the same place in very different ways That could be a great mentor text for young writers as well Finally this is just a great friendship book about appreciating the differences in our friends

    This book was cute I think children will love tracing Jasper the fox's tracks along the red dotted line and seeing all the mayhem he creates as he is moving around too uickly and not noticing the things around him I think the message at the end is also a good one for children to learn especially in today's busy world The message was essentially SLOW DOWN NOTICE THINGS AND PEOPLE But it didn't come across as preachy and it was a fun story
