Monty is mighty enough to take karate in a funny, true-to-life sequel with surefi re appeal for early chapter-book readers.
Monty Gerald Morris may be small and shy, but he's a mighty smart kid and an A+ reader. In an endearing follow-up to Mostly Monty, the quiet first-grader continues to come into his own — playing the part of a tree in a comically miscued school play, sharing his enthusiasm for ants at an outdoor birthday party, even signing up for karate class despite his asthma. Once again, Johanna Hurwitz finds gentle humor in everyday situations and offers a charming portrayal of a likable character many young readers will relate to.
Johanna Hurwitz is the award-winning author of more than sixty books for children, including MOSTLY MONTY and the Riverside Kids series. She lives in Great Neck, New York.
Anik Scannell McGrory is the illustrator of MOSTLY MONTY, as well as several other books for children. She lives in Tarrytown, New York.
