Reviews

"Playfully told with succinct text and illustrations, this tale will appeal to a wide audience. It is both simple and sophisticated with subtle and not-so-subtle levels of irony...Once again McDermott proves his visual and storytelling mastery."--School Library Journal, starred review"This is a tightly focused tale with a great payoff; playful, spirited Monkey comes out on top while devious and dimwitted Crocodile is left hungry, and listeners are certain to cheer for the cheeky primate's final victory."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
