Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For his third adventure, handy monkey Chico Bon Bon joins his friend Clark at his uncle’s sprawling seaside resort, where things are mysteriously breaking. Clark, a surf-loving elephant, and Uncle Bill, an alligator, show Chico the items that need fixing, including a hole in a cabana roof, a leaky boat, and a busted waterslide. In a story brimming with goofy humor, Monroe fills her watercolor pages with intricate ink details, zeroing in on each of Chico’s meticulous repairs. A sort of Bob the Builder meets Sherlock Holmes, Chico combines smarts with an upbeat can-do attitude. Ages 4–8. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Cynthia Levinson
In this third entry in this goofy series, Chico Bon Bon, the monkey with the tool belt, exhibits his mechanical prowess, first, by fixing a broken water sprinkler and, then, displaying each of his tools. These tools include recognizable items such as washers and also kid-hilarious ones like wackadoodle and purple stuff. The tools come in handy when Chico learns from his elephant friend Clark that things at Clark's uncle's beach resort are breaking. The good news is that the surfing near the resort is "sweet." Traveling to the resort, Chico fixes a rickshaw's tire with gum and rescues a frog's bike with balloons. Touring the wreckage at the resort with Clark, Chico finds a cabana with a hole in its roof and coconuts and popcorn on the floor and fixes the hole with palm leaves. Next, he finds a sailboat littered with breadcrumbs that is so scuffed it leaks; he fixes this, too. On he goes until, in the pump room of the broken water slide, he finds, logically, a green duck tap-dancing on the pump handle. Putting together the weird clues, Chico, the mystery-solving repairman, realizes that the duck has, inadvertently, caused all the breakage. At last, Chico and Clark can surf! Bright watercolors and ink splash across these ridiculous pages. Reviewer: Cynthia Levinson
