There's a valuable lesson in the story about learning to be organized and taking responsibility for one's actions. It's a lesson that should be learned early in life, or one might find oneself in an episode of the "Hoarders" TV series!
"Don't Let Rocky Get Away!" is a nice example of a "chapter book," which is a story book intended for intermediate readers, typically ages 7-10. Unlike picture books for beginning readers, a chapter book tells the story primarily through text instead of pictures. This book does have illustrations, but the illustrations only complement the story, they don't tell the story as completely as those in books for beginning readers.
The author, Yuval Harpaz, has written a book with an insightful story. Most children, and all their parents will be able to identify with Tommy's mother, and the mess that toys can create. When Tommy and his monkey fall into a new place, their adventure begins. This is a wonderful story where Tommy meets old friends. The illustrator was not named, however, the pictures are bright and bold and depict the story of Tommy's adventures. There are many lessons to be learned in this story. All of them have a reasonable answer and ending. All children will be interested to know how this story moves on. Note: I was given this book to read and review.

Illustrated colorful children's book and with a review you can get extra content.
Tommy is not allowed to go out to play til he cleans his room. He tries to blame it on his friends that came over the other day. He can barely even get into his room.
Rocky the spider monkey is on the run and he knows how to get back to Tommy's room. Tommy meets other toys he's tossed aside and they want to go back to his room also. They all chase the monkey, he will tell them if they catch him.
Love how they all pitch in to work together. Love moral of the story.
Yuval Harpaz did a great tale of developing a tale of a boy, his messy room and his imagination. This book was so realistic and reminded me of my own boys when they were young. The book is easy to read, especially good for ages 6 - 8, and also a lot fun.
I really liked Don't Let Rocky Get Away! by Yuval Harpaz and I highly recommend this book. I give it my "Grandpa Seal of Approval."
[Please note: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.]
I hope most children will enjoy this book, but as with any story that is different people's reactions to this book will vary.
Not to spoil the end, I'll just say that in order to get back home he needed to take responsibility and clean up the mess. The lovely illustrations are supporting the story and the quotes on the newspaper the monkey reads are insightful.
