    This is a lovely book about jump to the sky and being yourself, also has something about friendship. The format is very-creative, although the kindle app always mess up formatting to a certain degree, I could still imagine how amazing the book is given a hardcover, in a portrait format. The story line is simple, and it effective delivers the message, a boy loves trampoline and always enjoy something that other don't understand and don't really appreciate. It is such a wonder metaphor to everyday life. Not everyone appreciate and enjoy the same thing, some are busy, some are totally profit-driven, some forget how to appreciate long time ago. I also love the friendship line developed towards the middle of the story, it provides the story something more to take home. Share the amazing things with your friend, and never lose your curiosity. The illustrations are wonderful, as always. Among the top. The stokes are simple, but apparently they are well-designed, well-thought, and well-rendered. The palette and the poetic part of the illustration also give this book a lot more to enjoy and ponder upon. I would hight recommend this book.

    This is a beautifully illustrated, strange little picture book about points of view, and sharing points of view. The boy, the trampoline boy, just wants to jump up into the sky, away from the all the haters that want to hate, until Peaches joins him, in his jumps.Nice book, but hopefully kids know they aren't going to jump quite that high.But good to show there are other ways to look at things.Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

    The story was rather sweet, and the illustrations darling. There was not as much character development as I would have expected, however.

    Review to be added to Amazon UK on 3rd August 2018This is a lovely children's picture book that teaches about different perspectives and to look at how others see the world. The images are nice and bright and the story is easy to follow I did expect a slightly stronger ending but its still good - 4 stars

    A pleasant picture book, that makes a good virtue of its tall and thin format. Trampoline Boy is the only kid in his neighbourhood to appreciate the heights he can achieve, and what he can see, from trampolining in his back garden all day, until someone else gets curious about the benefit, and asks to join in. And so literature for the very young has another outsider finally accepted, whether he wanted acceptance or a friend or not. I wish the makers had made the obvious joke about him bouncing ("Boing!") up to where the planes are flying past - surely it should then become "Boeing!". And I think the newcomer is the winner, as opposed to the lad perfectly happy on his own who gets company thrust upon him, but beyond that the simple moral pleasure of the book is there for all to see, and the design, in varying between plainly worded page accompanying a simple, uniform layout, and wide expanses of fantastical sky, is very pleasant.

    This is a sweet children's title about a young boy who jumps on his trampoline from day to night. He jumps and jumps even though others find him different and question his jumping. He stays true to his love of bouncing and is one day joined by Peaches, who finally wants to see what Trampoline Boy sees while jumping so high. The illustrations are fun, bright and engaging. It's nice to see a story use a simple concept like jumping to focus on bigger things like friendship and acceptance.I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

    This book seems like it might be a bit large for the library, so I am a bit on the fence. BUT the oversize books are popular, so I am leaning towards thinking it would be a nice addition.It is a bit psychedelic, very colorful, a little scary, with slightly odd looking children. I don't know that I would buy it as a gift book, unless the child likes jumping on the trampoline.*eARC Netgalley*

    Cute little book about doing what you like to do and seeing things a tad bent! I liked this story! It encourages being an individual and doing what you like as it does no harm to others! I received a Kindle copy in exchange for a fair review from Netgalley.

    This could be a fun time at Story Time. I could see the movement every time we singsonged Boing…. This is a simple story of a boy who loves to bounce on a trampoline. From his bounce he can see things no one else can, until the day, a girl asks to see what he sees. This is a fun book, I enjoyed reading it, and I will enjoy sharing it.

    All it takes is one person, one question and you may be able to see the world a little differently. Wow. This book was phenomenal. I'm sad I will be waiting until March to get it! The story of Peaches and Trampoline Boy is one that is often overlooked and not told. The story of two children not quite sure how to interact with their peers, but so desperately wanting to. The illustrations told the story as well as the words did. This book is one of those books you will want to share with your classrooms and have discussions about kindness, friendship and seeing the world through someone else's eyes. Beautiful, just beautiful.

    Trampoline Boy is a picturebook written by Nan Forler and illustrated by Marion Arbona. It is currently scheduled for release on March 6 2018. In this story readers see the world through the eyes of a character we only know as Trampoline Boy. His favorite thing to do is jump up and down, up and down on his trampoline. Kids walk by and tease him, but he remains steadfast and calm. One day, a quietly exuberant girl, Peaches, is fascinated by his jumping. Trampoline Boy wordlessly invites her to jump with him, and by spending this time with him, Peaches and readers get to see how important and valuable different perspectives are.Trampoline Boy is a sweet and visually lovely, picturebook. The images are stylized, and brightly colored. The main character is a boy fully engaged in his favorite activity and ignoring those that mock him for being different. Peaches watches him, fascinated by his jumping, and how much he loves it. She wants to see, to understand, and he is willing to share. I love the story, because it is about doing what you love. However, it is also about not just being willing to explore someone else's perspective, but being excited about it. It is also about being willing to share that view. Reaching out a hand to those others might exclude or mock, and taking the time to know and understand is so important and something we all need to take the time to do. What a sweet and inspiring story, that is also a lovely read both visually in in the lyric text.

    Trampoline Boy is a cute tale about a boy who loves to bounce on the trampoline every day. The first lesson that this book wants to convey to young readers is that you should never cease doing what you love. The bouncing of the boy on the trampoline is sort of a subliminal message of trying to achieve one's dream. While the other kids who always see the trampoline boy are like those who might deter to obtain your goal. Trampoline boy ignoring them teaches kids that you should never listen to what they say. Instead, it should serve as a motivation to continue what you are doing. The second lesson that I think this book wants to impart is through the girl named Peaches, who can be read in the latter part of the story. Trampoline Boy stopping and leading Peaches to the trampoline means helping others to attain what they desire. Lastly, no man is an island, therefore, it is more fun if you have a companion while trying to reach that dream of yours.
