The entire book features monkeys, mainly drumming on drums, but also doing a few other things, with sing-song rhyming text. "Dum Ditty Dum Ditty Dum Dum Dum" is an oft-repeated refrain.
There is a board book version of this book and a regular version. The board book version is slightly shorter than the original version.
You might like: If you have a little one, he or she might be hypnotized by the sing-song rhymes, and want to hear this book over and over again. There is also some rudimentary counting, and your little one may learn a couple of words like "apple" and "plum."
You might not like: If you have something against monkeys, you might not like this book. In fact, the climax of this book features literally millions of monkeys, kind of like a joyful looking Planet of the Apes. Maybe that is why they look so happy: they finally exterminated all the humans. Also, if it bothers you that creatures which are actually apes are continuously referred to as monkeys, you might not like this book (it doesn't bother me all that much, but just throwing it out there).
I give this book one star, and my son gives it nine stars, so I will average them out and just give it five stars. How could I give something my son loves so much any less?
This was one of my favorite spreads because I say it all the time! I had to buy another version, pre 1980s.
