When a series of disasters strike and his library book is destroyed, Jasper must find a way to pay for the book or else he'll never get his chance. Expressive black-and-white illustrations are sprinkled throughout the story. This installment will have kids laughing out loud as they're learning how to treat library books responsibly.

This is Caroline Adderson's sixth Jasper John Dooley book, the second one illustrated by Mike Shiell. Jasper is a fun and funny little boy. I like Adderson's style, telling the story consistently from Jasper's perspective. His little boy logic for taking care of the damaged book, his misunderstanding of the price on the book cover, his schemes to raise money to pay for the book, and his fear of the consequences are amusingly silly.
Jasper John Dooley may not be the brightest kid on the block, but he's funny and creative. Readers will enjoy reading about his problems with his library book and will want to read about his prior mishaps as well.
Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!
What a joy! A boy, a murdered book, and a library dog. This story is a character builder that teaches children to assume personal responsibility. I am enthusiastically giving this to a precocious 4 year old whom I know will just love it.
