Suzanne Williams lives in Renton, Washington.
Suzanne Watts was a very naughty monkey when she was little. Once she jumped from a tree—but was suspended in midair when her dress caught on a branch! Now she prefers to draw monkeys instead of acting like one. Her mischievous animals also appear in bear hugs and hilda must be dancing. Suzanne Watts lives on the Cornish coast of England.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K—Williams uses the old bouncing rhyme "10 Little Monkeys" as a jumping-off point for this book. A large family of small monkeys has a barrel of fun, skating in the street, rolling down a hill, climbing up a tree, fishing off the dock—but one family member always gets injured, at which point Mama consults the beleaguered doctor, who sports a banana-patterned tie. His answer is always emphatically the same: "No more monkeys...." But is the series of accidents merely careless coincidence? Hardly. One monkey is more mischievous than most, and the clever methods she employs to undermine her siblings are almost as entertaining as her comeuppance at the book's conclusion. The rhyme is as enjoyable as ever, while the added activities and suspense will make this a hit with children. Watts's illustrations are hilarious: monkeys in funny hairdos, full of kinetic energy and wreathed in vibrant, alternating colors. The facial expressions on all of the characters are priceless: playful, chagrined, overwhelmed, and downright naughty. This version of the classic fingerplay could easily become the new standard.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
