Jack's mom may tell him that "because" is not an answer, but he disagrees. In fact, this almost-six-year-old thinks "because" is the perfect answer . . . to any question!

Why did he cover himself in Band-Aids?

Why is the dog wearing a cape?

Why did he eat all the chocolate cake?

“The story will allow youngsters to recall fondly their own “because” moments.” (School Library Journal)

PRAISE FOR WHY?: “Readers will laugh aloud.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for WHY?: “Jack isn’t just cute or just annoying; he’s doing his best to understand the world, and Torrey’s sensitivity brings Jack’s feelings home to readers.” (Publishers Weekly)

Praise for WHY?: “Jack is just as sweet as in the earlier volume.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for WHY?: “Youngsters trying to make sense of their own worlds will likely relate to Jack’s curiosity.” (Booklist)

Praise for ALMOST: “Children impatient to step into the shoes of their older siblings or friends will find a kindred spirit in Jack and take comfort in his literal ups and downs. Touching and true to life.” (Publishers Weekly)

Praise for ALMOST: “Torrey precisely captures Jack’s desperate desire to be bigger and to be able to master the adult world.... This is a sweet, tongue-in-cheek look at growing up that will reassure the youngest sufferers of youth that they are not alone.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for ALMOST: “This simple story addresses both the desire of children to be older and sibling rivalry. It’s sure to be a hit at storytime.” (School Library Journal)
