Reviews for Jack Blasts Off

Barnett works wonders with a limited vocabulary, packing the stories with humor, tension--and admonishments of Jack. Pizzoli's scruffy-edged, emotive cartoons are just as funny, and he carries the comedy into drawing lessons and closing endpapers. -Publishers Weekly, starred review Novice readers will relish [Jack's] gleefully self-indulgent trajectory. -BCCB Reviews This series title will be a surefire hit with readers who love Mo Willems's Elephant & Piggie books. -School Library Journal eview
