Overview

Sometimes Ruby needs
just one more minute of sleep,
one more thingy for her hair,
one more push on the swing,
and one more scoop on her cone,
(and one more,  and one more, and one more . . .)
until one more is just
too much.
Maybe it’s time for 
just one?
If you know a someone like Ruby,
Just One More will be 
just right!

Ruby clearly did not get the memo from the Oracle at Delphi regarding moderation over excess. To her mind, the more the better, whether it’s “just one more hair thingy” or “just one more push” on the swing. Readers will quickly sense that “one more” is never just “one more” for Ruby, and when her teetering ice-cream cone skyscraper goes “splat,” they’ll probably agree that a little self-discipline is in order. Debut author- illustrator Rolli’s buttery, pastel-hued oil paintings convey a character who’s the soul of doe-eyed adorableness, and whose sense of entitlement is just a teensy bit out of whack and easily correctable—which is why the book feels somewhat slighter than its interesting premise. There isn’t a whole lot at stake, emotionally or comically. It doesn’t help that Ruby is always shown in isolation (the only other human presence is a stiff arm that presumably belongs to her mother), leaving no real sense of how Ruby’s behavior affects others. Maybe there’s another kid who’d like a turn on the coin-operated pony ride, too. Ages 2–4. Agent: Stephen Barr, Writers House. (June)

PreS-K—Brief oversized text and large oil paintings combine wonderfully to introduce readers to Ruby, a child who lives life LARGE. A worthy companion for Ian Falconer's Olivia, Ruby is depicted on different colored grounds, with curly blond hair flying atop a round face that often fills the page. Whether she's sleeping or eating, arranging her hair or playing, Ruby always wants more: one more minute of sleep, one more hair ornament, one more sip, one more ride on the bronking horse, one more push on the swing, even one more penny to throw in the wishing well. When she gets her wish for still one more scoop of ice cream to top the already tottering pile on her cone, though—"SPLAT!" The spread following the picture of Ruby holding her stacked cone, tongue protruding in anticipation, says simply, "Uh oh," leaving readers to assume the outcome before the next page turn. Don't be surprised if readers echo Ruby's mantra when they reach the end of this story: "Just one more" time, please!—Marianne Saccardi, formerly at Norwalk Community College, CT

More character sketch than story, Rolli's debut picture book introduces a little girl who always wants "just one more."Starting with her request for "just one more minute" of sleep when woken, blonde, pink-cheeked moppet Ruby asks for several other things without coming across as spoiled or demanding. This is due to her sweet depiction in Rolli's digitally enhanced oil paintings that show her smiling and enjoying hair thingies, rides on a mechanical horse and dropping pennies in a fountain to make wishes. She does end up learning an overt lesson when her request for "just one more scoop" of ice cream causes her towering cone to topple over. Then she makes do with "just one toy in the tub" (albeit a gargantuan rubber duck that looks more like a pool toy) and "just one book before bed" (a huge volume entitled The World's Complete Book of Fairy Tales). Judging by the lipstick marks all over her face, however, her request for multiple bedtime kisses is indulged.A sweet, if simple, picture-book character sketch. (Picture book. 2-5)

Meet the Author

Jennifer Hansen ran her own design firm for many years before returning to her first love: oil painting. She lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with her family. She (usually) gets a kick out of her own children pushing for “just one more” until the occasional crash! boom! bang! and the realization that she has let them express a little too much independence! 

Just One More is her first book for children.

    we just loved this book! i hate to admit i was attracted to the cover but my kids and I can relate to all the "just one more's" and loved the little Ruby character. the nice/naughty innocence keeps it light and i like how ruby is somewhat satisfied with just one. the ending is the best for moms, but i won't spoil it.
