Synopsis

Jennifer Jones Won't Leave Me Alone by Frieda Wishinsky, Neal Layton

She writes me love poems, full of words like adore. Then she sticks on red hearts, she bought at the store. This is a hilarious rhyming story about a little boy who is fed up with the loving attentions of the little girl who sits next to him. But when the girl in question, Jennifer Jones, goes away, our hero realises how much he misses her. Soon he's the one buying red hearts at the store. You'll fall in love too with this heart-warming and highly amusing story coupled with Neal Layton's witty and quirky illustrations. This title is winner of the Sheffield Children's Book Award 2004, The Stockport Children's Book Award 2004 and the Portsmouth Children's Book Award 2005.

Reviews

A clever, funny and tender take on (very) young love. Layton's exuberant, scratchy line drawings, with clever photographic collages, are witty and charming Financial Times Beautifully styled, witty ... Both children and adults will enjoy the humour of the story that is bright and funny ... I highly recommend this book for your own little Valentine! Eastern Daily Press A sweet, funny tale of the boy-girl dynamic, written in jovial rhyme Junior Neal Layton's sketchy illustrations capture lots of contrasting emotions and draw the reader in to Frieda Wishinsky's sweet rhyming story -- Jane E Sandell The Scotsman A very funny book... Heart-warming Bournemouth Daily Echo
