Meet Jinx

Jinx is a small black and white cat who belongs to the crew. He tags along with them wherever they go. Duke discovered him at the shelter sleeping under a ladder on Friday the 13th and decided to adopt him and name him "Jinx". The whole crew takes care of him and they love bringing him to all their job sites. He's very curious and can be found peeking in and out of all sorts of interesting places. You'll have to see how many times you can find Jinx throughout the story. I think Jinx is Levon's favorite character and searching for him is one of his favorite things to do.


  1. we love to play "I found Jinx" on every page. But he's missing on just one spread!! Did you leave him out on purpose to drive the parents crazy? Whenever we get to that page, there is always big to-do about where he could be!

  2. Hi Hannah.

    The main reason Jinx is missing from that page is simple. Cats can't climb ladders. At least that's why I didn't put him up in the crane with Max. But if I had it to do over again, I think I would put him in there, because it's always bothered me as well that it's the only page "spread" where he's missing. I also thought of having him riding the bone, but figured that was a very unsafe thing to do!

    Thanks for the comment. I'm glad you guys like the books.
