ONE MONKEY TOO MANY -
Harcourt Brace, Illustrated by
Lynn Munsinger
* Junior Library Guild Selection
Vacationing monkeys just want to have fun, but when one monkey too many joins the crowd,
everyone's in for some unexpected adventure!
Seven mischievous monkeys wreak havoc as "one monkey too many" climbs first onto a bike
made for one, then into a golf cart for two, then into a canoe for three, and so on. The two
monkeys on the bike crash into a ditch, the three monkeys in the golf cart splash into the
lake, the four monkeys in the canoe drop over a waterfall. An infectious, rollercoaster rhythm
sweeps us up who dictate how many monkeys each scene can contain. Not even the author is
spared a dose of monkey business when "one monkey too many" pulls a grand-finale gotcha
that literally determines the uproarious fate of her book. -- Copyright © 1919 The Horn Book,
