Product Description:

Once there was a pedlar who sold caps. But he was no ordinary pedlar - he carried his wares on top of his head! One day he fell asleep and woke up to find his caps had been stolen by a tree-full of naughty monkeys.

Review:

Subtitled "A Tale of a Peddler, Some Monkeys and Their Monkey Business", this absurd and very simple story has become a classic, selling hundreds of thousands of copies since its first publication in 1940. A peddler walks around selling caps from a tall, tottering pile on his head. Unable to sell a single cap one morning, he walks out into the countryside, sits down under a tree, checks that all the caps are in place, and falls asleep. When he wakes up, the caps are gone--and the tree is full of cap-wearing monkeys. His attempts to get the caps back generate the kind of repetitive rhythm that young children will adore. (Age 3 and older) --Richard Farr
