Praise for The Monkey Goes Bananas
"This predominantly wordless picture book delivers a substantial helping of slapstick."
-- Kirkus Reviews

" There is a slapstick element to the humor (the monkey is flung around with some regularity), which will resonate with readers as they turn each page to see what the monkey will try next. Throw in an opportunistic shark with an empty belly, and the pieces are in place for a laugh-out-loud story that should earn plenty of repeat readings."
-- Booklist

"Kids will jump right into this rip-roaring flip book-paced tale."
-- School Library Journal
