KIRKUS REVIEW

This has a primer value too, as the vocabulary is, on the whole, a simple one for beginners, and there is enough repetition, association of action pictures with text, to carry the first year reader over the more difficult words. But five year olds -- and even younger -- will get some chuckles out of the story of the monkey whose curiosity led to his capture, then to successive adventures en route to New York, and finally to a happy home in the zoo. The artist has a sense of the child's liking for simple form, gay colors, humor and action. A newcomer, for American children, and a find.
