PreS-Gr 1—Monkey lives a quiet life alone in the jungle, eating bananas on a tree limb, reading books, and swimming in the cool lake. An unexpected visitor, a mouse known as Little One, arrives and starts making himself at home. At first, Monkey is frustrated as Little One copies everything he does, interrupting his peace and quiet. Little One doesn't understand "monkey-speak" when he is politely asked to leave. After Monkey shouts, "Leave me alone!" a couple of times, Little One finally gets the idea and leaves. Monkey finds that being alone doesn't feel the same and soon sets off to find Little One and welcome him back. The soft and sunny, full-bleed watercolor illustrations are lovely, although not all scenes look like a jungle. VERDICT A sweet and simple introduction to the challenges and rewards of sharing company.—Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga Public Library System, OH
