Julia Rawlinson is a Good Books author.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2—Good-natured, accommodating Stomper isn't a very good mule-in-training. He likes a lot of things about Mule School, but stubbornness is definitely his worst subject. Mules simply aren't supposed to be cooperative or generous, but he can't help himself. He gives apples away when he should be guarding them, thoughtfully opens gates that he should be blocking, and, after a particularly bad day, sorrowfully concludes that he's useless. It turns out, though, that mule-headed moves (like digging in one's hooves and refusing to budge) are sometimes very dangerous, as when the dam gives way and a violent wave threatens to drown every mule in the valley. But not to worry; Stomper's outside-the-box thinking saves the day and even inspires Mrs. Kick to update her curriculum. Chapman's cheery chalk pastels are a pleasing accompaniment to Rawlinson's lighthearted prose. This simple story deftly demonstrates that there is always more than one way to be a good little mule.—Catherine Threadgill, Charleston County Public Library, SC
