Horn Book Review

A little monkey escapes from the family motorcycle's banana-shaped sidecar and hops aboard a fire truck, a street sweeper, and other vehicles driven and occupied by animals. Finally, parent and child make it to the monkey homestead, which, naturally, has wheels. This giddy-making romp is wordless but for the occasional identifier printed on the side of a vehicle (e.g., "Octobus"). (c) Copyright 2019.
