Monkey was David’s first Brand New Reader character, and these four stories: Monkey, Where Are You? Monkey The Mummy, Monkey’s Loose Tooth, and Happy Birthday are, as experts know, exactly the kinds of short, funny stories that children who are just starting to read need in order to succeed and have fun. So enjoy Monkey as he hides from Mom, loses his first tooth, and wraps himself in bandages until he looks like a mummy. And if these are fun, see what Monkey does with balloons, and kites, a worm and a pogo stick in the Monkey Trouble collection.
