100 Hungry Monkeys! by Masayuki Sebe

This book is delightful.  It's not just a picture book with simple text, there's more!

Kids Can Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

There are monkeys all over the place in this book.  They are all doing something different.  They are also all saying something.  Sometimes it's something nonsensical; sometimes it's a question to be answered.  There are also things hidden on the page that a footnote at the bottom asks if you saw them.  It will keep your child busy.

While the monkeys are hungry and thinking only of food, a monster shows up with a big mouth and big teeth.  (We look like a whale out of the water and it's green with polka dots, so it's not really scary.)  They escape across the bridge, then find out the monster only wanted to play with them.  So they save him.  And everyone gets to eat.  How could things be better?  Oh, a little sleep...
