My family and I are very big on reading aloud. I'd already read "Where the Red Fern Grows" by the same author, Wilson Rawls, and so we decided to give this book a try.
By the end we were all bawling. Even Dad.
This is a very beautiful, spiritually nourishing book with gently repetitive text, and is a great read-aloud or a good book to curl up with on a rainy afternoon. It has many hilarious parts, many tear-jerkers and a passle of memorable moments as the fortunate reader travels along with Jayberry in his escapades after a bunch of escaped circus monkeys. Worth a credit at least! A very worthy read.
I LOVE this book. It is my absolute favorite! It's just silly adventure and typical little boy tricks and flubs. I really like how clean the book is and it doesn't have a lot of depressing moments like other books by the same author. Definately a fun book.
One of my favorite books from my childhood.
i don't like monkees of any kind... it was a gag gift, but being the reader that i am i decided to give it a try. a cute story that had me laughing at the boy and the "monkey business" he became involved w/, but it shows how strong his relationship w/ his family and especially his grandfather is.
