I'M A MONKEY by Robert Kraus


Email this review


I'm a monkey. My mother is a monkey. My father is a monkey. My brothers are monkeys. My cousins are monkeys. I have a best friend--(here you turn a page)--who lives next door. (Another turn) He's a monkey too."" Except that we left out the sisters, grandmother, grandfather, aunt, uncle, great-aunt and great-uncle in the interest of brevity, this is the complete text of Kraus' shaggy simian story, which derives its surprise ending, so to speak, simply from the absence of one. Hilary Knight's doubly monotoned action portraits show all the dressed up family members behaving like just what they are (and just a little bit like Eloise).
