Jag's New Friend based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Popular young singer LeAnn Rimes and her husband, dancer/choreographer Dean Sheremet follow their initial collaborative effort, Jag, with a story of friendship. As Jag's New Friend opens we find the perky jaguar and her best friend, Simon, lazing in a field enjoying a beautiful day. But, Simon's been pretty busy lately as captain of the climbing team, and he no longer has a great deal of time to spend with Jag. When Jag complains to her mother, mom suggests she visit her friend, Isabel. However, Isabel the parrot isn't at home. Instead, Jag found a snake, Bo, who offered to play. Now, Jag has been warned that snakes aren't 'cool'. But, Bo looks good to him - he'll show those friends who ignore him. The little jaguar is soon disheartened when he sees that what Bo really wants is Isabel's eggs. (Wouldn't you know, snakes are always the bad guys!). So, Jag has a lot of explaining to do about why he took up with this slithery creature in the first place. The lesson is clear: even your best friends can't always pay attention to you, and be careful who you trust. Sales for this title will probably be buoyed by illustrator Richard Bernal's colorful illustrations and the Rimes name. - Gail Cooke
