9780064433136: Caps for Sale Big Book (Reading Rainbow Book)

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

About the Author:

Esphyr Slobodkina (1908–2002), internationally renowned artist and author of the children's classic Caps for Sale, was among the first female American artists to explore abstraction and the first to use collage in American storybooks. She studied art in Russia and China before immigrating to the United States in 1928. She was a founding member of the American Abstract Artists group, and her work is represented in prominent museum collections across the country.
