I'm thrilled to say that Jasper John Dooley: Star of the Week by Caroline Adderson and illustrated by me (my children's book illustration debut) is now available!
About the book: 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.
Praise for Jasper John Dooley, Star of the Week
The above image is one of the illustrations from the book that I felt best about.
A big thank you to Caroline, Sheila, Rachel, Kids Can Press, and most especially Jasper for letting me take part in making this story come to life. Expect to see a few more posts about Jasper in the coming weeks! Thanks! Cheers! - Ben
