Design Rationale

With Jimmy Cook Discovers Third Grade we achieved that rare occurrence of tone of voice and visual style syncing flawlessly. The illustrations work hand in three-fingered hand with Kate & Jol Temple’s madcap third grade explorer. Complete with handwritten weather updates and charmingly naïve illustrated ‘inventories’ (featuring everything that would and could fit in an eight-year old boy’s pockets!) each page is designed to feel like an authentic log entry of this history-obsessed, junior sea captain with an unlimited imagination for adventure.
