Booklist - 04/01/2020 The fable of “The Tortoise and the Hare” gets a lively new spin in Willan's second Jasper & Ollie adventure. Two friends—Jasper, a fox, and Ollie, a sloth—decide to build a fort. But Jasper suggests that they should improve on their original idea: they should each build a fort and see whose is better. As Jasper races around at warp speed on the right-hand pages, adding to his increasingly elaborate fort (it needs a second story! a moat to keep out intruders! A ROCK-CLIMBING WALL!), Ollie, on the left-hand side of the book, slowly gathers his tools, finds a tree, and begins construction on a simple, cozy treehouse. When Jasper's imagination gets the best of him and disaster ensues, Ollie's comfortable vision—and, of course, friendship!—save the day. The story is told, graphic novel–style, through speech bubbles and sound effects, amusingly drawn in bold, energetic lines. The odd-couple friendship and the cozy conclusion will leave readers feeling just right. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
