Jumping Jack by Germano Zullo

Release Date - May 13, 2014

Chronicle Kids

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Steeplechase horse Jumping Jack and his jockey Roger Trotter are best friends and a champion team. Together, they've won many championships. When Jack's performance becomes lackluster and sloppy, Roger Trotters seeks every specialist imaginable to find out what's wrong with Jack. The answer is more surprising than anyone might have imagined.

I see Jumping Jack as being an exceptional story for a child who may not be excelling in school, in a sport, or really for any reason. It sends a nice message that sometimes we mess up, and it can take teamwork to figure out what is going on. The illustrations capture the essence of the story in a beautiful, artistic way, rounding out what is a very enjoyable children's story.
