Trampoline Boy

Publisher: Tundra Books
A lyrical picture book about the joy of jumping -- and a springboard for discussion about unique perspectives.

Through the eyes of a character we only know as Trampoline Boy, we are invited to understand how he sees the world. His favorite thing to do is jump up and down, up and down on his trampoline. Kids walk by and tease him, but he remains steadfast and calm. One day, a quietly exuberant girl, Peaches, is fascinated by his jumping. Trampoline Boy wordlessly invites her to jump with him, and by spending this time with him, Peaches and readers get to see how important and valuable different perspectives are.


"Whether it leads to a place of fantasy or just a sense of physical release, kids who have experienced the liberating joy of jumping will understand trampoline boy's obsession" --Publisher's Weekly

"Children may jump at the chance to pore over this unusual and inviting story." --Horn Book Magazine
