Synopsis

Extraordinary Jane by Hannah E. Harrison

Jane is an ordinary dog in an extraordinary circus family. She isn't strong like her dad or graceful like her mum. She isn't brave like her sisters or daring like her brothers. When she tries to be those things, Jane just doesn't feel like herself. But she also doesn't feel special. Through the eyes of the ringmaster, readers and Jane learns that her ordinary qualities of friendship, kindness, and loyalty are extraordinary, and just being herself makes her special.

Reviews

Winner of the 2015 Oklahoma Book Award for Illustration * This is an exceptionally polished first book. Harrison's acrylic paintings, which blend realistic animal portraits with a charmingly old-fashioned circus setting to very funny effect, are the star of the show, but her understated storytelling and pacing are equally on the mark.

Kirkus, starred review * In a world full of competition for kids to be the fastest, smartest, and best at everything, this story's message is a worthy one.
