What would you do if one day you woke up and instead of your brother there was a monkey sleeping in his bed? Monkey Made Dream by Tom Listul and Heather Listul Hewitt is an imaginative tale of one girl’s big surprise and the day that follows.
This is an adorable book. A girl wakes up to find her brother isn’t in his bed. Instead, there’s a monkey. Funny thing is no one–not their mother, their teacher, or their classmates–sees anything wrong with her brother being a monkey. It’s like they don’t seem him as a monkey at all. This reminds me of Wacky Wednesday by Theo LeSieg, where one person can see things all crazy, but no one else can.
The rhymes keep the story flowing along at a nice pace, and the illustrations, while simple, add so much character to the story.
Monkey Made Dream is destined to get some laughs from young readers. They’ll enjoy this one.
