Jack has been given some special jumping beans by his uncle and told not to eat them. Naturally, he pops them in his mouth almost straight away. Soon he gets a tingling in his legs and then he's bouncing and jumping all over the town himself, getting into all sorts of trouble . . . The I AM READING series provides just the right balance of challenge and support for newly independent readers. Large, easy-to-read type, satisfying stories by top writers and cheerful full-colour pictures help children make the transition from picture books to chapter books. Each book includes a bookmark flap, tips for beginner readers and either short, numbered chapters or two short stories.

About the Author:

A H Benjamin has forged a very successful career as a children's writer, spanning two decades. He has over twenty titles for a wide variety of age groups and has been published by Scholastic, Andersen Press, Franklin Watts, Little Tiger Press and others. BAA! MOO! WHAT WILL WE DO? (Little Tiger Press) was the tenth most borrowed children's book in UK libraries in 2003/2004 and was translated into ten languages.

From Booklist:

When Jack gets some jumping beans from his uncle, he finds them a funny curiosity. But when his grandmother cooks them for his breakfast, he has a problem. Suddenly, Jack is jumping across streets, flying high over the playground, soaring above the school, and heading for the roof. The airborne activity is a little repetitious until first the fire department and then the military are called out to save Jack, without success. Reenter Grandma. In a clever twist, she has kept some of the jumping beans for herself. So she swallows them down, enabling her to fly high enough to capture Jack and feed him leaden brownies that will bring him back to earth. This entry in the I Am Reading series will attract kids with amusing artwork, which features lots of funny characters amazed by Jack’s jumping prowess. Grades 1-2. --Ilene Cooper
