" This book reminds me of all of the crazy stories that my younger brother used to make up when we were little kids. Defies all rules of logic, but is funny and sweet. " said.

" Great for cause and affect. Very cute series. Amusing outrageous stories. Not as good as Ate The Wash but still very good. " said.

" Pretty cute, especially since I'm a basketball fan. Not as cute as Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash, though. " said.

" Jimmy's Boa wreaks havoc at basketball practice, though his techniques turn out to make the Scream Team the best basketball team around. " said.

" I first read "The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash" when I was in grade school. Not realizing until about 20 years later that there were sequels, I read this as an adult. Maybe that makes the difference between why I loved the first and not this one. Or maybe this one really wasn't that good. " said.

"I first discovered Jimmy and his boa when I was a kid watching Reading Rainbow. The first book is a hilarious classic that still makes me smile. For a sports story time I just had to add this one. As always Meggie is coming home to Mom and telling her all about her day. On this day everyone is in the gym taking dancing lesson. Jimmy and his boa are partners, but the dance teacher tells the poor boa he has two left feet and up into the basketball net he goes and it goes on from there. Fun, funny, and with the signature illustrations this is the one book that even those who hate snakes might enjoy!" said.


I think the 2.5 comes from my love of the original, The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash. This left quite a bit to be desired.

Sadly, this story tries to follow the same question and answer chicanery that the first book did. It just fails. Rather than being on the edge of your seat asking what happens next, each preceding page told you what would happen. Then it tried to throw in a question. It was convoluted, and disappointing.

This book was also not illustrated quite as well as the original. The first had an almost impressionist quality to the watercolor-y pictures. The art from this (albeit from the same artist) had a polished but ugly quality to it. In truth, it's not so bad, it's just nowhere near the quality of the original.

We plan to try the others from the series, and hope this was a fluke. The picture of the gym teacher and boa in the basket save this.

Borrow it (and skip it if you don't love the original).
