Field Day Friday

Field Day Friday (2000)
Mickey and Longjohn did everything together. They were both fast runners and best friends. When they raced, it was often a tie. But then came Field Day, and the Fifty-Yard Dash. Mickey and Longjohn were off and running when Mickey’s sneaker fell off. (Based on Ms. Caseley’s son Michael’s very same mishap, big sister Jenna knows just what to do to reunite her favorite team.)

"As always, the artist’s brightly colored illustrations, rendered in watercolors, colored pencils, and black pen, have a childlike charm...the characters are expressive and appealing.... Readers will relate to the trials and tribulations caused by (even friendly) competition, and sisters everywhere will appreciate Jenna’s thoughtful, clever contributions." --Lisa Dennis, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA (School Library Journal)
