Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Every child and every parent will recognize the story told in this charming book. Little Monkey wants to play, but Big Monkey has to gather food. Bored, Little Monkey is naughty. Then, Big Monkey has to make the beds. Again, Little Monkey is naughty. After the third time, Big Monkey yells. Little Monkey is sent to his room. Some tears and some time later, both monkeys apologize. Little Monkey apologizes for being naughty. Big Monkey apologizes for yelling. Both monkeys feel better and go to play, their love for each other reaffirmed. Alan Durant's simple text reasserts the constancy of a parent's love, while Katharine McEwen's illustrations help to keep the sometimes-serious story from getting bogged down. Conflicts such as these are bound to happen; this book provides a handy tool for parents and children to talk about them.
School Library Journal

PreS-K
Little Monkey gets into mischief when Big Monkey is too busy to play with him. First he amuses himself by throwing figs that Big Monkey has picked for supper. Then he swings and jumps in the Big Tree, but crash-lands in the middle of the bed that Big Monkey has made for him. Finally, he swings from a branch and lands right on top of Big Monkey, who is trying to nap. Little Monkey fears that he is no longer loved when he is sent to bed for punishment, but is reassured that Big Monkey loves him always, even when naughty. There's nothing original here, but the familiar message is always on target for small children, who will easily identify with Little Monkey. Lively cartoon drawings in watercolor and pencil depict the mischievous animals at play in a colorful jungle setting.
