Mister Chu and I had so much fun reading this one together. At first, I felt so bad for Daniel. I mean, his parents hardly hear a word he says. They love him . . . they’re just airheads. Stuck in their own worlds. And then there’s the class bully, Chris McSteel. He seems to have nothing better to do with his time than make fun of Daniel. Even the mean zookeeper seems to have it in for Daniel.
One messy monkey medicine twist later and Daniel’s life starts looking up. From there on, Mister Chu and I were laughing at all the things that happened. Of course, this book took a bit longer to read than it should have because every time we got to a part about Shiba (the elephant), Mister Chu went off on a tangent about elephants. It made for a few interesting discussions 🙂
This book is great to read together, whether your child is old enough to read it on their own, or you read it to them. Mister Chu, being only four, didn’t understand parts of the book but he still enjoyed it quite a bit. For a kid that loves animals, this book was a hit in our household! Who knew monkey medicine could make life so interesting?
Mister Chu and I received a complementary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The gifting of the book in no way influenced the review and all opinions expressed within are entirely our own.
