In the second book of the Mesaland Series, Baby Jack grows up and is renamed Hop-a-long. Hop-a-long and his sister Jumping Jack leap across the mesa and get into plenty of mischief. On moonlit nights, Jumping Jack likes to hop on the smooth sand beside the mesquite. And Hop-a-long prowls the mesa, spying on his prairie dog friends and hiding from Hungry Owl.

First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again, the seven books in the Mesaland Series introduce a new generation of readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Illustrated with charming, stylized black, white, gray, and red prints of Hop-a-long in the desert . . . Hop-a-long teaches children many fascinating details about the exciting ups and downs in the life of a jack rabbit."--Midwest Book Review


"Like all classic children's literature, the Mesaland Series retains its timeless appeal."--New Mexico Magazine


"All of the characters exude their own charm, their own cuteness, even their own cunning. . . . Those qualities will entice young readers to follow the characters in their encounters with wildlife and humans."--Albuquerque Journal


"With its eye-catching artwork, stories focused on Southwestern animals and mid-century charm, these tales of woodpeckers, jackrabbits, coyotes and other creatures of the desert are sure to make a handsome addition to any child's, or adult collector's, bookshelf."--Weekly Alibi


"[Douglass's] timeless illustrations for the Mesaland Series mix a pulpy comic-book flair he developed as a cartoonist with an attention to line detail and facial and body expressions that he must have developed as an oil painter."--Pasatiempo
