Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Chico Bon Bon, the fix-it expert who debuted in Monkey with a Tool Belt (Carolrhoda, 2008), is trying to locate the cause of a loud and strange noise in his tree house. After much head-scratching and searching, the resourceful monkey finally identifies the source—it's Clark, an elephant who has become stuck in the laundry chute. Chico Bon Bon whips out some tools from his trusty tool belt and extricates the wayward Clark; Clark's admiration of Chico's do-it-yourself talents prompts the monkey to produce a size XXL tool belt for his neighbor. Rendered in thin black line and bright watercolors on visually diverse page spreads, the cartoon illustrations offer much to pore over and reflect this illustrator's trademark sense of quirky humor. The plot, however, feels forced and the ending is disappointingly flat.—Kathleen Finn, Winooski Memorial Library, VT

From Booklist

In this companion to Monkey with a Tool Belt (2007), Chico the monkey has all the gadgets that he could ever need in his tool belt. Some items are playful, but most are familiar, everyday devices, such as a screwdriver, a hammer, and a flashlight. Monroe creates a real story, not just a scenario, when Chico uses the tools to rescue his elephant friend, who has fallen down the laundry chute. The gadgets provide the fun, especially because they can make a small creature so powerful, and kids will pore over the details in the small line-and-watercolor vignettes. Preschool-Grade 2. --Hazel Rochman

Review by Gayle Jacobson-Huset

Chico Bon-Bon wakes up to a very loud noise. He hops out of bed and makes sure his tool belt is on straight. At first, he thinks the noise is the wind, so he closes his bedroom window and reattaches the curtain rod with his screwdriver. During breakfast, he hears the noise 17 times! He looks all over his tree house to see where the noise is coming from. He gets all dirty when checking the chimney, so he wipes his face with his hankie, then throws the hankie down the laundry chute. The terrible noise echoes up through the laundry chute! But what was making that noise? You'll just have to read this delightful story, written and illustrated by the very talented Chris Monroe, to find out.

I especially love the way Chico uses all his tools in his search for the noise, and the fun way in which he solves his problem. Chris' illustrations are delightful and so much fun!

There's more than meets the eye with this book - that's why I'm giving it a high-five rating. Kids who like tools and who especially like problem solving will love this book!

Chico Bon Bon, the highly skilled monkey with an incredibly well-equipped tool belt, has returned. As before, he spends most his time building and fixing things for himself and his neighbors. Chico Bon Bon has the most amazing house: spacious, functional, and filled with useful gadgets and comfortable furnishings. Home construction must have involved his ultra-deluxe tool belt, which appears to have been upgraded since Chico Bon Bon's previous adventure with all sorts of nifty tools, including a frizzler, frazzler, snicker-snacker, and a putty splapper. Will his building talents and his super-charged tool belt help him to address a new problem when a loud and unusual noise seems to be coming out of nowhere?

This entertaining book offers a valuable opportunity to give children a small dose of economics, with Chico Bon Bon using his tools (capital resources) to fix things (a service) for people in the neighborhood. The impeccable illustrations add to the fun and make this book a top choice for children of all ages.

I have two boys, ages 4 and 3, and we all love this one. As a young dad, I sometimes find myself dreading many of the titles in our collection. There are the books I feign excitement over, and the ones I actually am thrilled to read. This is one of them, and might be top of the list at the moment. Funny, lyrical, clever and a full of visual details for the kids to soak in.

Read it, you'll love it. This book started to entertain my daughter and I when she was only 2. Almost three years later, we still love it! It is filled with so many super funny and interesting details, story and illustration--it will entertain us for years to come. The books of this author have a rare quality--they are appealing to all ages and are books that will always be part of our collection.

My only regret is that the author didn't make the monkey be a girl monkey. (Girls can use tools, too.)

because my son can't get enough. They are adorable. So illustration dense as well with lovely details that keep BOTH child and adult interested. There are cute insider jokes, just total gem. I would say this one is slightly better than the Seaside Shenanigans but probably an individual preference issue. My 3 year old son LOVE LOVES these. The tools often being 'nonsensical ones' is fun and Seuss-like and my toddler finds this adorable as well. Very creative and clever. Bravo!

My son finds this book quite funny and entertaining. What six year old boy wouldn't? We have read this for the past 3 nights in a row, it's a must have! The story is very different, Chico is polite and thoughtful and has the most imaginative tools around...happy reading...a book simply for fun!

THis book cracks me up. The pictures are adorable and quirky, and the story is very humorous and well done. We bought it for my father in law (a contractor) and then ended up buying one for our son as well because it was too cute not to own our own copy. It is full of off-the-wall humor that the younger kids love (my third grade class loved it) and the older adults can appreicate as well. It's definitely worth it!

The series with Chico Bon Bon is great. My 6 and 4 year old enjoy me reading these stories to them. After my 100th time (believe me I know) they still ask for it every now and then. It's entertaining just to read off the list of tools he carries in his tool belt. Kudos to the illustrator/author as the drawings were very well detailed and we enjoyed looking at them.
