Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 1-3-One of Jasper's favorite things to do is to spend Wednesdays with his Nan, riding the elevator up and down, playing Go Fish, and eating jujubes. When he learns that his grandmother is going on an Alaskan cruise for a week, he is worried that she might never come back. The worst part is that he has to stay with a baby-sitter on Wednesday. It's a busy week while Nan is gone, though, as Jasper accidentally staples his stomach, attempts to build a cruise ship with a friend, and takes the class hamster home for the weekend. Emerging readers will enjoy following along with the quirky, charismatic boy and his friends and family in this humorous adventure. Pencil illustrations add to the story's charm.-Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga Public Library System, OHα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

When Nan leaves for a weeklong cruise, Jasper’s nervous tummy feels “pththth,” like a leaky beach ball. He worries particularly about missing his Wednesdays with Nan, their games of Go Fish, and sharing jujubes. The week starts with Jasper accidentally stapling papers to his tummy, creating two holes and requiring multiple Band-Aids. Despite his worry, time passes as Jasper builds a cruise ship (and fights) with his best friend Ori, meets the new babysitter, visits the principal’s office for doing a Very Dangerous Thing at recess, and captures an escaped hamster. Fans will relish the return of Jasper and his irrepressible spirit. Grades 2-4. --Suzanne Harold

This book is so funny! I laughed out loud several times at Jasper's antics. He has a unique way of viewing the world and I just love it. The story itself doesn't have much of a plot, but kids will enjoy Jasper's daily adventures. He is very dramatic.

The illustrations are charming and fit perfectly with the humorous and upbeat feel of the book. This is a great chapter book for kids that enjoy humor and a little wackiness.

By Jen Bee on January 15, 2015
Format: Paperback
I read this out loud to my 7 year old son, who is still in the early stages of learning to read. We very much enjoyed 'Jasper John Dooley: Not In Love' and so I had high expectations for this earlier book. My son enjoyed hearing the story but I didn't enjoy reading this one. The focus of the story is that Jasper's Nan goes away for a week and Jasper is sad, because that means he can't go over to her house on Wednesday. I would have been more interested if his parents had gone away for a few days, rather than his grandma. Nan being out of town just wasn't that exciting for the major plotline of the book. A few other things happened, like Jasper building a project with his friend Ori and he got to bring the hamster home from school for the weekend. I began to dread reading this each night though and I'm glad it's finished now.

It's a shame that I didn't enjoy it, since 'Not In Love' was a lot more engaging. Now I'm uncertain as to whether I want to read the first and fourth books out loud. Perhaps I will get them once my son can read them on his own. If your child is able to read this alone and enjoys it, then I would recommend it. But as a read-aloud it was dull.
