Maggie's Monkeys

Linda Sanders-Wells, Abby Carter (Illustrator)


List Price: 16.99*
* Individual store prices may vary.


Maggie’s active imagination is annoying — until she needs a big brother to back her up — in a hugely funny, spot-on tale every sibling is sure to relate to.

A family of monkeys has moved into the refrigerator! At least, that’s what Maggie says. Of course, no one else can see them, but that doesn’t stop Mom and Dad from playing along, even going out of their way to accommodate the invisible visitors. An extra bowl of pudding at the table? A DO NOT DISTURB sign on the fridge? What’s a rustrated, reality obsessed brother to do? Readers will hoot with laughter at this warm, witty, wildly imaginative story of sibling love and loyalty.

Candlewick, 9780763633264, 32pp.
