Product description

Review

"Monkey lives in the jungle, where he enjoys eating bananas alone, reading books alone, and swimming in the lake alone. Clearly, he is content on his own, but one day, the Little One arrives and tries to befriend him. Though Monkey resists, the cheerful mouse persists, setting up his belongings beneath Monkey's hammock, hanging out with him, and copying everything he does. Annoyed, Monkey finally yells at the Little One, who leaves. Out of sorts and missing his companion, Monkey searches for the amiable mouse in hopes of persuading him to return. Expressive pencil drawings define the lovable characters, while overlapping color washes create the settings, brighten the scenes, and heighten the emotional content of this satisfying story. . . . young children will enjoy the simple, direct storytelling and, of course, the happy ending." --Booklist Online
