Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Ping Pong wants to fly, and he jumps off anything he can climb to try to make his dream come true. His attempts at flying cause problems in the barnyard, and the other animals meet to decide what to do about the pig. Instead of punishing their bouncy friend, they give him a trampoline so that he can jump to his heart's content. He is so pleased with his new gift and their kindness that he uses his trampoline to undo all the messes he has made. This book is similar in style to Church's Little Apple Goat (Eerdmans, 2007). The story is simple and short, with only a few lines per spread, and it is set in a friendly, informal font that flows from page to page. The pictures are colorful and expressive. The animals are done with an economy of line, but have obvious personality. The well-worn theme of following a dream is complemented with a stronger theme of friendship and returning a kindness for a kindness. (However, adults may want to mention that it is not a good idea to jump out of a tree onto a trampoline.) Overall, this is a pleasant story with potential as a read-aloud.—Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT

I purchased this book on sale at the grocery store of all places a couple of years ago. My husband and I read it standing there and had to bring it home because it made us chuckle and smile so much. The story itself is fine, though not especially remarkable. It's the illustrations that are great! The pig is so cute and we just really enjoyed the art style. The art style is definitely simple enough to appeal to young kids, but is still very charming.

My son LOVES this book. We have read it so many times he loves to read along to it by himself. The pictures are big and vibrant. We love all of Caroline Jayne Church's books.

This book had entire missing pages. I know I didn't pay much but I was really disappointed in the quality. Worn okay, torn, maybe but entire pages missing - I don't think so I was very disappointed. As far as the content - LOVE the book, just wish I had all of it.
