The expression ‘more fun than a barrel of monkeys’ has never been as evident as in this crazy chaotic new picture book from the duo who brought you Warning, Do Not Open This Book!.
Completely giggle-making for young readers, a bunch of monkeys plus a few assorted others are trapped inside a book which has been closed by a ruthless child. The only way to rescue them is to turn the pages and release the mayhem. But wait! By turning the pages the reader draws ever closer to the end – and the book will be closed again! ARGGGHHH!
With an irresistible power given to the reader, with the monkeys’ impassioned pleas to be kept unrestrained, this book will thoroughly engage readers from preschool up.
The striking illustrations are digitally composed and the black backgrounds (well after all it IS dark inside a closed book!) are relieved by primarily earth-toned compositions.
This pair’s first book was an E.B. White Read-Aloud Honor Book and received much praise. This is definitely in every way its equal.

Highly recommended for your small humans up to around age 8 (or older ones who love a giggle!). Start your own campaign now – SAVE THE MONKEYS!
