Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz
Monsieur Monmouton's animals, having enjoyed their delightful Spree in Paree, take off for New York, despite his "non!" He is too late to stop their plane, but he and his faithful dog Cabot follow hot on their trail. Monmouton and Cabot just miss the animals' boat tour around Manhattan, then lose them on the Central Park carousel, in the MOOMA museum, and atop the Empire State Building. Working from a list the animals left behind, Monmouton and Cabot move from Chinatown to the Kool Kat Klub. By the time the animals finally arrive there, Monmouton is having such a good time with a friendly waitress that Cabot has to round them all up to get on the plane home. A postcard from his new friend promises possibilities for Monmouton in the future. The comic, loosely painted, chiefly double-page scenes are accessible watercolor snapshots of the city, the crowds, and the touring animals. The jacket is a perfect introduction to the fun, showing Monmouton and Cabot chasing the animals crowded on a double-decker tour bus past Times Square. A special delight is the dinner in the Chinese restaurant with the animals attacking an array of tempting dishes with their chopsticks.

Following on the heels of A Spree in Paree (Holiday House, 2004), Monsieur Monmouton's farm animals are now off to New York. After the farmer throws their tickets in the trash bin, the critters manage to retrieve them and sneak away. The chase is on as Monsieur Monmouton and his faithful dog, Cabot, head to the Big Apple with only the animals' sightseeing list as a guide. After just missing them at Blooming Dells, a boat ride around the island, Central Park, MOOMA, Chinatown, and the Empire State Building, the man and his dog lie in wait at the last destination on their list, the Kool Kat Klub. Monsieur Monmouton makes a special friend of the waitress and is in a magnanimous mood when the animals arrive. They all have a grand time and after the last set, Cabot herds the whole lot to the airport. The text works beautifully with the illustrations to create a humorous romp. Stock uses just the right amount of French to give the story some panache without being overwhelming. Her pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations present an amusing and colorful look at the bustling city. The picture of the animals hiding in plain sight at the art museum is especially comical. Pair this title with John Himmelman's Chickens to the Rescue (Holt, 2006) or David McPhail's Pigs Aplenty, Pigs Galore! (Puffin, 1996) for a domestic-animals-gone-wild storytime.

Kirkus Reviews
Sacre bleu! With Monsieur Monmouton the farmer and his faithful dog Cabot again in hot pursuit, the barnyard crew that enjoyed A Spree in Paree (2004) hie off to the Big Apple. Effectively concealing themselves from Monmouton, but not from readers, in Stock's splashy, crowded, jewel-toned watercolors, the animals shop at Blooming Dells, enjoy (and even become) art at MOOMA, take a trip around Manhattan on the Oval Line and settle down at last for an evening of jazz at the Kool Kat Klub. There, they find Monmouton waiting for them, his head and attitude already turned by a pretty waitress. And hardly has Cabot patiently herded all aboard the plane and back to France than a perfumed postcard arrives, announcing an imminent visit in return. Ooh la la! Non-New Yorkers may not recognize all the locales-but the thrill of the chase and general bumptiousness of the menagerie will easily carry any young armchair tourists along for the ride.
