Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mo Monkey is going through a phase that just about every child knows all too well: he refuses to take off a beloved article of clothing, no matter how disgusting it gets. Mo wears his rainbow sweater to collect juicy berries and to make mud pies, and he even uses it "to clean his hands and feet before dinner... and to wipe his face afterward." Naturally, Mother Monkey is itching to give the grubby sweater a thorough wash. But her good intentions lead to a tug of war that pits Mo and his jungle peers against all the animal mothers-and that stretches out the cherished sweater to the point that it's unwearable. No matter: it converts into a nifty hammock. Although Bedford's (The Copy Crocs) brisk and economic text moves the story along, his writing is so descriptive that the promising premise merely unfolds rather than takes off. Bright colors abound in Eaves's (Fairy Tale Secrets) paintings, and his animals have the streamlined shapes and dot-eyes of favorite stuffed toys. However, his pictures favor cuteness at the expense of personality, and the power of Mo's obsession-and the wiliness that it engenders-never come alive. Ages 2-5.

School Library Journal
PreS-K-Mo the monkey wears his beloved rainbow sweater everywhere. When Mother Monkey wants to wash the dirty, stinky garment, he won't let go of it, and a tug-of-war ensues. Other animals join in until the youngsters let go and the mothers fall down into a mud puddle. Everyone takes a bath, including Mo, who washes his sweater. But now it is stretched out and can't be worn-so he uses it as a hammock. The illustrations are the most outstanding feature here, and the vibrant red, yellow, and green spreads will attract young audiences. Unfortunately, although Mo is an adorable little guy, he never gains readers' sympathy. The story lacks the appeal and conviction of such classics as Holly Keller's Geraldine's Blanket (HarperTrophy, 1988) and Kevin Henkes's Owen (Greenwillow, 1993).-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
