Getting what you want can be tricky, especially if you don't ask in quite the right way. Follow one little monkey's journey through many emotions as he tries every trick in the book to get hold of his friend's banana, until he finally hits on the magic word - please! Using only two words, this is a fantastic introduction to the value of manners and compromise for young children. Packed with humour, colour and exuberance, this is a brilliant observation of toddler behaviour.

About the Author:

Ed Vere studied fine art at Camberwell College of Art and has been writing and illustrating children's books since 1999. He is published in both England and the US. Ed is also a painter, working from his studio in east London, and is represented by galleries in London and Los Angeles. After a year and a half living in Barcelona, Ed now lives and works in London.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2–Two big-eyed monkeys, two words, but only one banana. How to solve this dilemma is the premise of this colorful story. The monkey in the blue shirt has the banana, and the one in the red shirt wants it. Vere tells their story entirely through facial expressions, body language, and a clever use of “dialogue” which rapidly degenerates into a monkey melt down (“Banana! Banana? BANANA!!”). The monkey in blue reconsiders sharing, but only after his friend offers the second word in this story, a hesitant, “Please?” There's a bit more for these two to learn, but the end result is a win-win situation. Done in brightly colored inks and placed on pages of bold blues, yellows, pinks, and purples, this story is reminiscent of Chris Raschka's Yo! Yes? (Orchard, 1993) with its expressiveness and minimal dialogue. A fun choice for sharing with a group.–Roxanne Burg, Orange County Public Library, CAα(c) Copyright 2010.
