Reviews:
  • Gaiauaco
Great book for both my 2 and 4 year old. The rhythm of the book is great, my 2 year old has the book mostly memorized and likes to "read" it herself. The story and the illustrations provide for an interactive reading experience. A few verses seem unnecessary to the story--but this is a children's book, not the Great American Novel. My kids still want in included in their nighttime story line-up, even after a couple months.
  • Zut
This is my 2-year-old son's absolute favorite book. It is enjoyable and easy to read since there is a good cadence to the text. The pictures are very colorful and extra-informative (i.e. you are talk about happy/sad faces, fruits, colors, leaves/flowers/branches, shapes, ... besides the story.) It is also a great book for talking about overcoming adversity caused by unfairness. Chutney the Chimpanzee comes home to Drabsville from his travels bringing a seed. He plants the seed which grows into a beautiful tree. The repressive mayor/dictator sees the tree and has it cut down and puts Chutney into prison. You will have to read the rest to see how Chutney overcomes this repression and transforms Drabsville into Happytown!

It is a tricky thing to try to teach kids that authority is not always right and sometimes you have to stand up to it. This book strikes a perfect balance, with the main character being punished for doing something beautiful and for the common good but technically against the rules. When he ultimately wins out (with the help of some young chimps), rather than punishing the person who jailed him, he teaches him the error of his ways. A very thoughtful book, but one that won't be over the heads of the intended audience.

This is my son's favorite book since he was 4 and he's now 7. I like the overall positive message of this book and also Giraffe's Can't Dance. Good for teaching your kids it's okay be to different.

We just love this book! One of our favorites.

My 6-year-old loves to read it to us and we totally enjoy how she's able to get into the cadence of the rhymes. It's a fun book to read for this reason, not to mention the fabulous illustrations and the story is delightful. We have several books illustrated by Guy Parker-Rees, who illustrated this book. I just love his artwork, as do the kids. If you like this book, also check out "Down by the Cool of the Pool" and "Giraffes Can't Dance".

I like the storyline, but introducing the concept of prison/jail is a bit tricky to the toddlers/preschoolers especially when the "crime" is planting a tree. I wish I can come up with a better explanation why the mayor put Chutney in jail than just because the mayor is a bad monkey.

I think the whole thing could have worked without a jail/prison. The mayor just could have ordered the tree be cut down or something.

Anyhow, even without this "minor" thing, this is not exactly my favorite out of my 1200 picture books. Sorry authors. (I know you must have worked so hard..)
Nice clean copy of the book
