About the Book

For the very newest readers, a funny story with charming illustrations—about friendship, animals, and jumping!—by a beloved author-illustrator.

I can jump. She can jump. A bug, a cow (over the moon, of course) . . . even a hippo can jump. Delightful illustrations by David McPhail and simple text will have new readers jumping for joy!
