Monkey with a Tool Belt and the Seaside Shenanigans
Monkey with a Tool Belt and the Seaside Shenanigans by Chris Monroe
I have never seen this series of books before. It is a very clever idea. A monkey with a tool belt named Chico Bon Bon helps other animals out by fixing, repairing, and making things with his tools. In this book, Chico must help find what is causing problems at his friend Clark's uncle's resort. He fixes things that are broken just to find other things that need fixing pop up. The illustrations are great - colorful and cartoonish and include clever labels on one page for all the things inside the tool belt. This is a cute, fun book that I recommend to all tinkers of any age.
This review is based on a publisher supplied electronic copy.
Until next time, bon voyage and happy reading.
