What Kind of Book is Mr. Monkey Takes A Hike


Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Mom of Boys
Three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.

It’s fun to see Mr. Monkey go outside instead of just sitting in and playing his video game, but a little sad that all he thinks about when he is out is the video game.

Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader

The overall message here is a good one—there’s adventure waiting outside, and it’s a good idea to put down electronic entertainment and get out there and experience it. The delivery is pretty heavy-handed though, which makes it less fun. In addition, there’s a repetitive pattern, which would be fun and clever a few times, but I feel like I just got beaten over the head with it. It’s a pass for me.
