Hi, Jack! (A Jack Book) by Mac Barnett & Greg Pizzoli
Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
Hi, Jack! (A Jack Book) is the first book in the brand new early reader series, A Jack Book. Crafted by picture book masters, Mac Barnett and Greg Pizzoli, the series is sure to be popular with children and their caregiver’s alike.
Jack is a cheeky monkey who doesn’t always do as he’s told or act appropriately. His friends are Lady, a delightful Granny figure with red-framed glasses and matching red lipstick, and an obedient dog, Rex.
The simple and repetitive text is paired with bold and colorful illustrations. In this story, Jack wreaks havoc with Lady’s red lipstick. While my almost six-year-old found the plot a little simple, my four-year-old was totally captivated by mischievous Jack.
The inclusion of step-by-step drawing instructions for the three characters is a delightful bonus at the end of the story.
I have no doubt, other books in the series will be equally cheeky.
