A band of mischievous monkeys steals every one of a peddler's caps while he takes a nap under a tree. Literature of Delight. Under a tree, where the pedlar sleeps, he is unaware of the rascally bunch of thieves stealing away with his wares. Every hat is gone, and only a bunch of grinning monkeys can change such misfortune into a madcap adventure for every lover of les chapeaux. When some monkeys engage in a bit of monkey business, the cap peddler must use his imagination to retrieve his wares. "Caps! Caps for sale!" calls the peddler, until one day he wakes up from a nap to find his caps have disappeared. Fashioned from a folktale, here's "a bright picture book, infused with a humor which seems to spring from Slobodkina's own hearty enjoyment of the troubles of a peddler with a band of monkeys"

One of my favorite books! Be sure to make the monkey sounds and act out the peddler and the monkeys actions.

This is a wonderful learning book for the little ones. Through this book they can learn counting, colors and because of the repetitiveness, beginning reading. The story is simple. The illustrations are colorful. How the man gets his hats back is comical.
