9780006480723: Jennifer Jones Won't Leave Me Alone

About the Author:

Frieda Wishinsky is a popular Canadian children's author who has written funny and sensitive books to wide acclaim in the USA and Canada. This is her first book for RHCB. Neal Layton was born and raised in Chichester, West Sussex but has since lived in Newcastle, Brighton, London, Slough and Glasgow. He now lives in Portsmouth with his family. He uses all sorts of different media to make his illustrations: pencils, paint, pens, ink, pieces of collage, biros, photocopiers, cameras, a computer, bits of stick, old toothbrushes, dough, hair, leaves, anything that comes to hand ... Neal is the illustrator of the Emily Brown series (Orchard) and the Oscar and Arabella series (Hodder)

From Publishers Weekly:

Jennifer Jones sits at the desk adjacent to the boy narrator, and her unrelenting, goo-goo-eyed ardor leaves him wishing "she could move to the jungle/ And live in a tree/ And talk to the monkeys/ Instead of to me." But when Jennifer moves to Europe instead-and, according to her letters, becomes the toast of the continent-the boy finds that the world is a much lonelier place. Losing himself in schoolwork is futile: "It's boring! It's lonely!/ I miss her a lot./ I wish she'd return/ To her usual spot." Wishinsky's (previously teamed with Layton for Nothing Scares Us) pithy rhymes spark Layton's pleasingly dizzying cartoons. His scratchy ink line brings a comic spontaneity and edginess to every scene, and succinctly conveys the boy's emotional writhing at the very thought of being the object of Jennifer's crush. Marginalia, clip art and photograph collages (Layton draws Jennifer on top of photos taken in various capital cities, savoring the pleasures of Europe) punctuate the pages and add a goofily alluring visual depth. As for Jennifer's true love, it finally does conquer all: when she sends notice that she's returning home, the boy runs out to buy a plethora of red hearts. Ages 3-8.
