Baby Monkey, Private Eye by Brian Selznick and David Serlin
This book is one of the cutest books that I have ever ordered for my Library. Baby Monkey is one smart monkey! He finds clues! He has snacks! But pants, oh pants are hard! The pencil drawings are so soft and beautiful. I love the shades of black and white with the pop of red on the final page of each chapter.
I used this book during a storytime and the kids really enjoyed it. At first, they thought I was crazy to read them such a long book. It clocks in at over 190 pages but there are very few words on even fewer pages. The repetitive lines had the kids reading along with me after the second chapter.
Not going to lie, I enjoyed it just as much as they did.
Baby Monkey, Private Eye is available now from Scholastic Press.
