Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—A monkey "as big as a pea" emerges from a flower. As he starts to explore his world, astonishment soon turns to fright. Peanut believes the buzzing insects are "wild animals of every sort." When it rains, he worries that the "sky is falling down," and when the sun sets, he frets, "The sky is on fire! And now the Big Light is going out!" At nightfall, the timid soul clings to a branch and declares, "It's the End of the World." While Peanut waits for the worst to happen, a polite beetle squeezes by, causing him to loosen his grip, fall, and ultimately let go of his fears as he grabs onto another twig with his tail and makes a new friend. When the next day dawns, Peanut awakens to the possibilities of the "magical forest" and enthusiastically invites Beetle to come along and explore. Lucas's luminous oil paintings are filled with warm colors and vivid textures. In the nighttime scenes, brightly patterned bugs stand out against a velvety black backdrop. Featuring a childlike main character, this is a winning tale of innocence and discovery.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book introduced my children (boys, ages 5 and 3) and I to the author David Lucas. We absolutely loved the illustrations and the story is so cute. We first got the book from the library and when they kept reading it over and over and over, AND we ended up renewing it over and over, I decided to buy it. Amazon had the best price. It shipped quickly and we have ready it plenty of times since. I definitely recommend the author's books.
