9780060543754: Looking for the Easy Life

Life's pretty good on Monkey Island. All day long, the monkeys sit around talking their monkey talk and enjoying their big-time monkey dreams.

That is, except Oswego Pete, who is one slick monkey.

He's bent on finding the Easy Life—a place where a monkey never has to bend all out of shape for a banana, or do any hard work, ever.

Is it where the high grass grows at the foot of the mountain?

Or down by the seaside?

Uh-Huh Freddie, the Chief Monkey, says easy isn't always good, and a little hard work's not always bad.

Who's right?

You will learn how to find the Easy Life in this witty adventure from popular author Walter Dean Myers and artist Lee Harper.
