Ï Jubal's Wish ñ Download by Æ Audrey Wood The well known, husband and wife author and illustrator team, Audrey Wood and Don Wood, have created an innocent and unique tale of a young bullfrog named Jubal that is filled with a zest for life Like another of their collaborations, The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear, this story is wondrous , has a happy ending, and teaches a lesson about how to treat others and how life is often filled with unexpected gifts I was surprised to find out the illustrations in Jubal s Wish were created digitally on a Macintosh They are vivid and full of color, but on close inspection it is easy to see that they were not hand painted Interestingly the illustrations are what I find appealing in this book Every turn of the page takes the reader to another full bleed, double page spread The story begins with a jubilant Jubal skipping down a beautiful flower path holding on to his picnic basket Don Wood artfully captures the changing mood of the story by gradually darkening the blue sky to create an unexpected turbulent storm in the lives of Jubal and his friends This book also is playful with its alternating perspective For instance, on the second opening of the book the reader is looking into the book through what appears to be Jubal s own eyes Then on the third opening we are looking down on Jubal as he gazes up at the sky Again on the fourth opening we are looking through Jubal s perspective at Captain Dalbert Lizard My favorite illustrations in the book, however, are the ones that include both the wizard and the wide eyed Jubal They have a mystical and grand sense to them.

The illustrations are absolutely out of this world There is not a single spot on any page that is not colorful This is an uplifting story about your attitude and selflessness It is no wonder it s a classic.
This book was actually recommended to me so I read it and I actually did not just absolutely love it It was a good book and I feel like most children would enjoy it but for whatever reason I just wasn t interested in it.
Dreams and Wishes, sometimes they work, and sometimes they don t This is what Jubal discovers as he tries to enjoy a bright sunny day by sharing a picnic lunch with Gerdy Toad who was too busy, and Captain Dalbert, who was too depressed.
The artwork These beautiful pictures and brilliant colors would have made this a favorite of mine as a child The scenes have an almost 3D quality.
