Reviews
"The text is drily witty, and the comical illustrations, rendered in pencils, watercolors, and ink and assembled digitally, are energetic and appealing. Kids may want to have jumping contests of their own after reading this-just omit jetpacks."--Kirkus Reviews
"Tabor makes his debut with an energetic story about a jumping contest among a group of animals. Tabor's mixed-media cartoons create friendly and funny animal characters whose personalities come through loud and clear. The witty resolution suggests that cheaters can still do pretty well for themselves now and again."--Publishers Weekly
"Tabor's picture-book debut doesn't carry a lesson per se, but it does have plenty of laughs and utterly sweet illustrations. While Fox's friends aren't pleased to learn about his scheme, things (mostly) work out in the end."--Booklist
