Just Like Jasper!

Nick Butterworth, Author, Mick Inkpen, Illustrator, Mick Inkpen, With Little Brown and Company $13.95 (26p) ISBN 978-0-316-11917-7
In another effort from this talented British team, plump, likable Jasper the cat heads for the toy store with his birthday money. The question is: What will he choose? A clockwork mouse? A robot? A jack-in-the-box? After much deliberation, he finally settles on a black-and-white toy kitten that looks just like him. Children will sympathize with Jasper's dilemma and appreciate his sound choice. The text is printed in oversized type, and Inkpen's engaging watercolors are surrounded by a generous amount of white space, which gives the book an air of freshness and exuberance. Ages 3-5. (Sept.)
