More Caps for Sale: Another Tale of Mischievous Monkeys
Caps for Sale was a read-aloud favorite of my children. More Caps for Sale has all the same mischievous monkeys, the same peddler, the same caps: all with the added twist of the monkeys watching and mimicking the peddler, with an unexpected blessing for him. You won't be disappointed in either story or artwork; it's a great continuation of the original. 40 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
From renowned author/illustrator Esphyr Slobodkina, whose bestselling CAPS FOR SALE recently celebrated its 75th anniversary, comes a never before published sequel, MORE CAPS FOR SALE. This easy-to-read picture book about a peddler and more mischievous monkey business picks up right where CAPS left off, and is filled with warmth and humor. It features original art chosen by Ann Marie Mulhearn Sayer from the Slobodkina Estate archives, alongside a captivating text also developed by the Estate. MORE CAPS FOR SALE is based on discussions between Sayer and Slobodkina before Slobodkina's passing in 2002. Through this posthumous story, Sayer awakens Slobodkina's voice.
