Count the Monkeys
Written by Mac Barnett
Illustrated by Kevin Cornell
Disney Hyperion, 2013. Unpaged picture book.
Get ready for a page-turning, wild adventure in the jungle! This counting book goes from 1 King cobra (who has scared off all the monkeys) to 10 polka-dotted rhinoceroses with bagpipes and bad breath (who scared off 9 lumberjacks). We see 0 monkeys on our journey, aside from a glimpse of their scared little tails zipping out of sight from page to page. There are some cheeky monkeys to be found somewhere- hiding on the end page, which will delight little readers of this mischievous tale. Another silly book from the team that brought us Mustache!
