Merl and Jasper's Supper Caper
(Knopf Books for Young Readers June 10, 1997)
It's suppertime, and a little girl named Ann has just enough time to sketch Merl and Jasper, an adorable cat and dog, before being called to dinner. But Ann isn't the only one who's hungry, so are Merl and Jasper! And since supper isn't brought to them, they have to go find supper. What better place for a paper dog and cat to look than on the pages of Ann's favorite books. Young readers will love seeing familiar fairy tale characters as Merl and Jasper follow their noses (and stomachs) up the beanstalk and down to the bottom of the sea--until they discover that the perfect supper is up to them and their imaginations. Without sacrificing the pure fun of a good story, memorable characters, and exhilarating illustrations, Laura Rankin (Handmaid Alphabet) cleverly conveys the idea that books are food for the soul.
