Are you ready to count the monkeys?
★ “Barnett’s adventure is a complete hoot in its absurdity…begs to be read aloud.”
—The Bulletin for the Center of the Children’s Book, starred review
★ “Cornell (who previously teamed up with Barnett for Mustache!) is an artist in the modern-day Disney animation tradition, effortlessly juggling funny chaos, irreverent characterizations, and visual winks and nudges. Barnett’s narrator may be increasingly frustrated (“We’re never going to count the monkeys!”) but he also has expert comic timing…. This spot-on spoof of counting books is the perfect reward for anyone who’s put in a hard day’s work with numbers, big or small.”
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Sure to be a hit."
—School Library Journal
“Kinetic, raucous read-aloud…. More fun than a barrel of… well, you know.”
