Jimmy and his conniving snake are back, creating confusion, bedlam, and havoc in a series of calamities. What starts as regular basketball practice turns into a riotously funny fracas when Jimmy and his boa enter the scene along with the basketball coach, a trampoline, a waltzing poodle, Miss Peachtree the dancing teacher, and a herd of bouncing rabbits (readers will love those rabbits). Kellogg’s characteristic ink, watercolor, and acrylic illustrations visualize the frenzy in this fourth story about Jimmy and his boa. As with the others, the good thing/bad thing device is cleverly worked out as Jimmy’s boa saves the day. It’s another slam-dunk for Jimmy fans. (Picture book. 4-7)
