What's Quinny & Hopper About

Publisher Summary

Quinny has a lot to say. Hopper gets to the point.

Quinny has one speed: very, very, extra-very fast. Hopper proceeds with caution.

Quinny has big ideas. Hopper has smart solutions.

Quinny and Hopper couldn’t be more different. They are an unstoppable team.

But when summer ends, things suddenly aren’t the same. Can Quinny and Hopper stick together in the face of stylish bullies, a killer chicken, and the brand-new Third Grade Rules-especially the one that says they aren’t allowed to be friends anymore?

What Kind of Book is Quinny & Hopper

What Should I Know As a Parent

Families are unique and have different expectations for the books they choose to read. The following is a list of concepts included in this book that some parents may wish to seek out or avoid.

Potty Humor: There are a few instances of potty humor in this book: “Did you know the word shampoo has poo in it?” “Go scratch your itchy butt.” “She cries so hard that the tuba in her diaper plays a fart again.” “Did you know that butterfly has the word butt in it?”

Language: No profanity in this book, though there is some name calling, such as “twit-ster,” “stupid,” and “moron.”

Violence: The bully brothers slap the side of Hopper’s head, flick his ear, step on his heel, and turn him upside down.

Though no one gets hurt from this instance, at one point a character puts their “hand over Quinny’s face and squeeze as a a consequence…”

Note that this list is not exhaustive and there may be concepts in this book that are not included or have been insufficiently or incorrectly detailed here.

What Questions Should I Ask My Child
