Praise For…


“Simple, repetitive text paired with comical character illustrations rendered in pencil, watercolor, and crayon, make this an accessible story for emergent readers.” — School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR FOX AND THE JUMPING CONTEST:  “The text is drily witty, and the comical illustrations, rendered in pencils, watercolors, and ink and assembled digitally, are energetic and appealing. Kids may want to have jumping contests of their own after reading this-just omit jetpacks.” — Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR FOX AND THE JUMPING CONTEST: “Tabor’s picture-book debut doesn’t carry a lesson per se, but it does have plenty of laughs and utterly sweet illustrations. While Fox’s friends aren’t pleased to learn about his scheme, things (mostly) work out in the end.” — Booklist
