Left with a busted bike, the two monkeys are given a cart by a golfing tiger. "Two," said the golfer. / "This cart is for two. / If you're looking for fun, / this is perfect for you." Would have been perfect, that is, if "one monkey too many" hadn't hopped right on.
The story continues in this vein with the monkeys trying out a canoe, an elegant restaurant, and, finally, a large bed.
At story's end, the book's author tells the monkeys, "This book is for six. The pages are full, / so no more of your tricks." Of course, as soon as the author goes out to lunch . . . you guessed it . . . one monkey too many gets into the book-literally-making a huge, hilarious mess all over the last page.
Lynn Munsinger was the perfect choice for illustrating this clever creation. Her pen and ink and watercolor cartoons capture perfectly the rambunctious action and gleeful expressions of the monkeys, as well as the horrified-yet comical-faces of the onlookers.
The book is a delight to read aloud. Highly recommended.
Reviewed by the Education Oasis Staff.
The story has a great rhyming flow to it on each page and really holds your attention. The illustrations are done in beautiful watercolors and really capture the mischief of the monkeys with lots of details in the background as well. Highly recommended!

My 3 and 4 year-olds love this book. The rhymes are very good (not your standard rhymes), the pictures are hysterical and the author manages to sneak in a counting exercise. Read morePublished on February 18, 2002 by Annamaria Basile
