Overview

The irrepressible, irresistible monkey is back in board book form--and the cover now features a wide band of snuggly, soft, polka-dotted flocking around the spine that looks just like Kiki's special blankie.

With her adored polka-dot blankie in hand, Kiki can do anything and be anything she wants. In a flash, it transforms her into a cowgirl, a pirate, even a caped superhero! So when the blankie blows away, Kiki will do whatever it takes to get it back…even face a very scary crocodile.

Janie Bynum's delightful heroine proves that love makes us brave and strong--even when we don't have our special blanket to protect us!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS

Kiki, a little monkey with an expressive face, loves her blankie. Polka-dotted and sassy, it is her best friend-her napkin when she's messy, wings when she wants to fly, and more. It goes with her everywhere until the day it blows away, and she must find a way to rescue it from the jaws of a crocodile-a known nemesis of monkeys everywhere. Brightly colored, uncluttered illustrations are set on large areas of white space, making the objects and action easy for young children to find and follow. Preschoolers will relate to Kiki, her blankie attachment, and to her energy and creative play. Her story will help them learn problem-solving strategies and how to be brave in scary situations.-Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ

From the Publisher
“I love Kiki-her unsentimental bravado is so wonderfully childlike. I give her my blanket (sorry-blankie) approval.”-Jane Yolen (Best-selling children's author: "The Hans Christian Andersen of America," according to NEWSWEEK)
