From the Back Cover:

The beloved classic Caps for Sale is now celebrating its 75th anniversary with a brand-new sequel featuring the caps peddler and those mischievous monkeys, now with even more monkey business in store!

In Caps for Sale, the peddler woke up from an afternoon nap to discover a tree full of monkeys all wearing his caps. Well, he got his caps back, but the story doesn't end there!

When More Caps for Sale begins, it is later that same day and the peddler starts his walk home. He does not look back. He does not notice monkeys following him. Right foot, left foot, right foot, left foot. All in step.

Now they are sitting in the tree in the peddler's backyard. Those monkeys!

The peddler is about to have another extraordinary adventure. True to their nature, the sixteen monkeys that make up the Caps for Sale troop mimic the peddler, but this time good things just might happen.

Filled with warmth and humor, this easy-to-read book is perfect for early readers and follows the same great folktale tradition as the original Caps for Sale.

About the Author:

Esphyr Slobodkina (1908–2002), internationally renowned artist and author of the children's classic Caps for Sale, was among the first female American artists to explore abstraction and the first to use collage in American storybooks. She studied art in Russia and China before immigrating to the United States in 1928. She was a founding member of the American Abstract Artists group, and her work is represented in prominent museum collections across the country.

Ann Marie Mulhearn Sayer met Esphyr Slobodkina in 1996, when she was hired to write musical narratives for Caps for Sale and other Slobodkina books. Slobodkina and Sayer became close friends, and Sayer has administrated and exhibited Slobodkina's works for over eighteen years. Using Slobodkina's original art and reflecting upon hours of conversations with her on perspective and her choices in stylization, Sayer employed great care to develop each layout as the artist herself might have done. More Caps for Sale is based on story ideas from Slobodkina and Sayer's imagination with prior permission from Slobodkina. Through this posthumous story, Sayer awakens Slobodkina's voice.
