Jasper John Dooley’s beloved Nan is leaving on a cruise for a whole week! He feels so pththth. All he can think about is Nan missing out on their Wednesday card game, and whether it’s raining where she is, too, and if she will ever come back. But each day something happens, from a stapling mishap to a hamster escape, and Jasper realizes that waiting for someone to return from an adventure takes forever unless you’re having an adventure, too. Jasper John Dooley: Left Behind is the second in a series of chapter books featuring a charismatic and funny central character. An only child with active, loving parents (and a most impressive lint collection), Jasper John Dooley is a true original.

Caroline Adderson lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, with her husband, her dog and the son who lied to her when he said he would always be seven.

Ben Clanton is an up-and-coming author-illustrator from Seattle who describes himself as a story scribbler, picture squiggler, book aficionado, child advocate, dragon tamer and avid sock wearer. Vote for Me! is the first book he has both written and illustrated.

Early chapter book or read-aloud, this effort will leave its audience with lots of smiles too. - Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

Adderson has a real sense of the strange, inventive imaginations (and emotions) of 7-year-olds and Jasper's adventures are funny, unpredicatable and utterly convincing. A worthy successor to the exceptional Jasper John Dooley: Star of the Week. - The Toronto Star

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. - School Library Journal

Fans will relish the return of Jasper and his irrepressible spirit. - Booklist Online
