Student Jasper Rabbit is not serious about getting his homework done. He prefers to watch shows and play games. As a result, his grades are suffering. One day he finds a bright purple crayon. It completes Jasper’s work making Jasper appear to be a high achiever. The crayon goes too far and takes over the one area that Jasper loves. Can Jasper get rid of the crayon? Can Jasper become more disciplined about school? This book is great for enforcing the importance of completing homework and working to a person’s potential. Illustrations are filled with evil villainy doomy looks reminiscent of old shows and movies which work well with this book and its varied scenes. The exaggerated expressions will make viewers laugh.
