Just as good as when I was 10!
Guest Review by Julie Hilton
A boy grows up fast one summer with a bunch of monkeys, some hard choices, and great lessons. A classic coming of age story I loved as a child.
Re-reading as an adult, it is just as good a story with even more powerful lessons.
What did I love most about this book? The interconnectedness of lives.
No content concerns. This book is recommended for all ages.

My teacher read this to my fourth grade class and I have never forgotten it. I remember the whole class laughing at the antics of the monkeys. It was just a wholly delightful experience.

I’ve never had the pleasure! Sounds like it need to give it a try though!
