Review:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Seven spunky monkeys head out every day for a fun destination. As the week progresses, one by one the animated apes fall prey to cupid's arrows and leave their friends behind. Then one Sunday, after the countdown is over and the spunky monkey count was absolutely none, the original seven friends show up, with their spouses and babies in tow, for a rollicking romp in the park. The bouncy, rhyming text is accompanied by Munsinger's lively pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations. The monkeys are appropriately attired as they grin, stomp, pout, frown, and show off. More fun than a barrel of monkeys, this book is sure to be a hit with the preschool to early primary-grade crowd.–Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

  (School Library Journal )

In rollicking verses that beg to be read aloud, seven monkeys go through the week beginning on Sunday in the park. One monkey stays behind with a magic show. On Monday, on the way home from the beach, another monkey drops out to jive at Monk's Cafe. By Tuesday, five monkeys still claim to be free of the love bug that seems to have bitten the others, but only four leave Miss Monkey's candy store at the zoo. And so it goes through the week, one monkey each day succumbing to affection found at the fair, the gym, the rugby match, until only one is left alone on Saturday night, but not for long. When we see the seven again on a Sunday in the park, they are complete with "seven spunky spouses" and "seven busy babies" all having fun together. Munsinger seems to have a great time with these seven long-tailed simians. Her pen-and-ink lines delineate the range of hyperactive situations while transparent watercolors add eye-appeal without slowing down the action. Emotions are clearly visible, particularly as the love-struck are delighted and the rest are dismayed. Great fun for all. 2005, Harcourt, Ages 3 to 7. (Children's Literature-Ken and Sylvia Marantz )
