Great rythym and ryhme in the story. Excellent pictures show the energy of the characters. And the vocabulary is nice and juicy, and there's a great silliness about the whole thing, but the main character? A sentient truck which looks like a monkey? I just don't get it. Maybe that's because I'm not a four year old BOY? I think it would work well in storytime and it would be interesting to find out if little ones liked the idea of a monkey truck hero.
Kind of like Superworm, but more useful as a transition to interests other than vehicles.
Monkey Truck IS a three- or four-year-old boy, on the go, got his own business to attend to, not even stopping for a banana. Respect that tiny agenda, wonder what world that little guy is in.Also, the dedication of this book is a marriage proposal. Stephanie, I sure hope you said yes!
T.G.I.M.T. (Thank Godz It's Monkey Truck.)Buy this title from Powell's Books.
My little "monkey" loved this one
It's a monkey and a truck okaaaaay. It was alright, besides having to explain what a tsunami was. That might've been a poor choice. But the kids liked it, and it reads well out loud.
This one was a little strange for me--I mean why is the monkey a truck while all the other animals are just themselves. But beyond that, the illustrations are cute and it reads well and I think kids might like it, even though I don't necessarily.
Strange and silly. Kids will probably love it!
Whenever there is trouble in the jungle, Monkey Truck races to the rescue! He saves small lizards from crushing elephant feet. He rescues big hippos from a shrinking and muddy water hole. He grinds gears to get the job done with his truck bed filled to bursting. He is Monkey Truck! Fueled by bananas and always ready to go, he is the hero of the jungle.This book grew on me once I got into the story. It has a frenetic pace that toddler will enjoy immensely. It also obviously has its own screwball [...]
My five-year-old son picked this book out from our local library this week, because, well, monkey AND truck.This book was a load of near-rhyme, strange rhythm silliness. That is not necessarily a criticism. I didn't enjoy this book, or even "get" this book, at all, but my son seemed to find parts of it hilariously funny. That's fine -- a monkey truck that zooms around the jungle rescuing other animals is certainly a positive role model for any child.
Little boys love monkeys and trucks, so combining the two is a stroke of genius. Bobo loved this book. Monkey truck is a hero of the jungle. The illustrations remind me of late 90s cartoons, think SpongeBob. The pages are thicker than regular pages, but thinner than a board book. It is a happy medium for the little ones who are over board books, but may still tear regular pages.
I like this book, but I'm not sure what the point of it is. Monkey Truck can do all sorts of things and helps in all sorts of ways. But why in the world would there be a half monkey/half truck living in the jungle? If there had been a boy at the end pretending with a toy or two, I would understand. Okay for preschool or toddler storytimes.
My toddler loved this; I wanted to throw it out the window. The monkey truck is kind and generous and saves his fellow jungle residents, but the drawing style itched my eyes, especially because I kept trying to figure out how the Monkey Truck worked at all. Best seen as a child pretending to be a Monkey and a Truck at the same time. Reasonable reading rhythm for the reader-out-loud.
Short but easy book for children to read. Very colorful with illustrations all over the pages. Preschoolers would enjoy this silly book about different animals and a monkey who looks like a small truck and who helps other animals in the jungle.
This book is weird. It is about a monkey truck (some sort of unholy offspring of a monkey and a truck I would assume). He does go around the jungle saving various animals who are in trouble, but I never quite got past the truly odd premise and illustrations.
Our story time theme combined "Curious George" with "Fire Safety". This story was perfect for both themes, as "Monkey Truck" is all about coming to the RESCUE! The children loved all of monkey's close calls and rescues.
This is one of the strangest children's books ever. He's a monkey and a truck. He saves Hippos from a Tsunami.Kids will love it for the rhyme, the animals, and the truck, but all I can do is sayh?
What's a "four-wheeled banana-eating machine"? The Monkey Truck of course! This is great book for young readers. Kids can help make the truck noises as Monkey tries (and succeeds) to save the hippos. Great for toddler read-aloud storytimes.
This book is constructed of sturdy paper and has such colorful illustrations that young children, especially boys, are sure to be engaged with the antics of a jungle critter that seems to be a complete ‘911’ rescue team comprised of only one single monkey!
This book will make kids bubble with laughter and the lucky reading adult will find that laughter infectious! Who wouldn't want a Monkey Truck?
Decent story. I loved the illustrations!
Short, rhyming text about a monkey/truck helping animals out in the jungle.
uh oh bippo, ah ah- from my one year old on repeat
The illustrations were bizarre in the best sense. They cracked me up. But I can't say much for the narrative.
Fun book. Especially the young boys in my class. Great read-aloud because it is fun, bright, simple, and has an upbeat pace.
Cute story but a peculiar idea. I think the monkey truck is a little creepy. Beautiful illustrations, though.
Little boys in my storytime loved this. Who couldn't love a truck that looks like a monkey, and a book with lots of action!!
Good silly fun.
zoom, zoom! lots of fun! a bit frenetic, but would be great to do with lots of sound effects and zooming around of a little stuffed animal. Can't you just see making a monkey truck puppet??!!
Great for a 2-year-old boy or girl who loves trucks!
