In this charming story, we witness the side-by-side day of two monkeys, Ed and Ted. Ed's day starts out rather splendid, while Ted's day, on the other hand, is not so splendid, indeed.
What follows is the day's adventures with Ed and Ted, with the nice and not so nice characters they meet, and the fun and not so fun predicaments they get themselves into.
My children enjoyed LUCKY MONKEY, UNLUCKY MONKEY, especially the humorous sidebars filled with such illuminating information as "it's difficult for monkeys to make everything they say rhyme all the time," and "it is an extremely bad idea to play with a strange dog that is growling and snarling so that its large, sharp white teeth show."
This is a fun book for kids of all ages, especially those who may feel that a bad day will never end. Trust Ed and Ted -- for every bad day, there's a good one. And sometimes, even good days end on a decidedly bad note!
