PreS-K Published posthumously, this book is an obvious labor of love for Sayer, who worked closely with Slobodkina for years. Using ideas and illustrations from the beloved author's works, Sayer constructed this sequel to the classic Caps for Sale , which closely mirrors the original, while continuing the story in a way that stays true to Slobodkina's voice and illustration style. She was one of the first illustrators to use abstract and collage art in children's books, and this new title is a celebration of her simplicity in line, color, and landscape. Children will delight in the monkeys' antics as they follow the peddler home. In this "monkey see, monkey do" tale, the monkeys and the peddler interact in various scenarios, each resulting in a mimicking of good behavior. The peddler spends most of his night and the next morning worried that he has not sold any hats. As he heads into town the next day, the monkeys follow him again, which favorably results in many hat sales for the peddler this time around. VERDICT This reimagining of the classic tale is a recommended purchase not only for the quality of the story but also because of the wonderful history of children's literature that is tied to it.
