When it comes to laying out a Jasper book, I sometimes have to edit out action sequences and gags so the story will fit comfortably into the 48 page format. Here is a sequence I had to trim from Jasper 1 – Lost in Skookum Valley. ( Ruby’s probably pretty glad she didn’t have to shiver through the rest of the story in soaking wet clothes! )

I was originally planning to start Jasper 2 -Secrets of the Petroglyph with Ruby training Jasper on her bike. This sequence is based on real adventures I had biking our dogs! They pulled me off the trail into the bush chasing squirrels more than once!
