This monkey rap is sure to please! Little Red Monkey was feelin kinda funky. He liked to dance in his underpants! Pure energy radiates from every page of this rapping, rollicking romp that follows an irresistibly spunky monkey from the jungle to Paris to Yokohama and even Timbuktu. Jonathan London, author of Hip Cat and more than thirty other books for children, draws upon his acclaimed talents as a performer and storyteller to put together this jazzy journey, which is guaranteed to set little feet a-rompin and a-stompin and little minds abuzz with the fun of language and rhythm. Frank Remkiewicz's glorious cut-paper illustrations burst from the page in an irrepressible, Matisse-like celebration of color and movement. Sly humor is bound to be found in both words and pictures wherever Little Red Monkey goes, whether he's passing the hat with a really cool cat or dancing the mazurka till he goes berserka. Swinging and jiving his way into instant monkey-show-business history, the jubilantly childlike character who stars in this dazzling picture book will inspire readers to pack their bags and be ready to roll for any adventure, imaginary or actual and, more important, to express themselves with joy and confidence, anytime, anywhere.
