Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS—Little Monkey is bored. Looking for something to do, he climbs aboard a lily pad and is quickly swept downriver. Luckily, his mother has told him, "If you ever get lost, find other monkeys. They will lead you home." As it turns out, the jungle is alive with monkeys of all shapes and sizes, and each new group has something to share. He learns to howl, swing, eat fruit, and hug. While he has to find his own way home, he uses these new skills to do so. Once there, he shows the others what he has learned so that no one is ever bored again. A palette of greens creates a generalized backdrop of leaves and swirling color upon which the animated creatures engage in their various antics. A few other animals help enliven the scenes. Back matter has facts about each of the nine New World monkey species featured. This simple tale follows the circular pattern of a classic hero story, although conflict is held to a minimum; no territorial behaviors are evident.

By V. Duquette on March 2, 2007
Format: Hardcover
from Kirkus Reviews:

The similarities and differences among New World monkeys are at the center of this tale of one lost monkey. Bored with his troop's routine of eating leaves and taking long naps, Little Monkey (a Squirrel Monkey) leaps onto a lily pad for a fun ride, but ends up far downstream. Remembering his mother's advice, he looks to other monkeys to point the way home. Although none help him find his troop, he learns something from each one: howling (Howler), swinging (Spider), snuggling (Titi) and eating fruit (Night). When Little Monkey puts these skills together, he finds his troop by himself and teaches them what he has learned. A back section identifies the monkeys and provides readers with some interesting facts. With animals that look like they will pop off the pages, and foliage so lush one can almost feel the humidity, DuQuette's naturalistic illustrations will take readers deep into the heart of the jungles of South and Central America. A lovely tale on its own, and a good springboard for discussing "what if . . . " with young children. (Picture book. 4-8)

DuQuette does it again! My four-year-old has been in love with his "Hotel Animal" and other books for years - we've read these books so much the pages are falling out, but it doesn't matter because we know all the words by heart by now... This is another brilliant and magical book for kids - and the facial expressions of the monkeys themselves make for some great mimicry on the part of my own monkey-boy...

5 stars!

Little Monkey Lost is a sweet tale appropriate for teaching children an important life lesson. The story is well written, but even more incredible is the detail that went into the illustrations, which were so carefully researched and executed. From the wide range of hilarious monkey facial expressions to the lush and inviting vegetation, each page remains captivating, entertaining and educational.
