Celebrate the 75th anniversary of the perennial favorite Caps for Sale with this never-before-published sequel to the beloved classic! In this first posthumous book from Esphyr Slobodkina, those mischievous monkeys are at it again, bringing laughs to a new generation of readers. The sequel, More Caps for Sale, picks up right where Caps for Sale left off, as the peddler comes face-to-face with those monkeys and their funny business yet again. More Caps for Sale is based on story ideas discussed by Slobodkina and Ann Marie Mulhearn Sayer throughout their years as friends and business associates prior to Esphyr's death in 2002. With simple text and illustrations, filled with warmth and humor, this sequel is perfect for early readers and follows a great folktale tradition.
More Caps for Sale: Another Tale of Mischievous Monkeys
The plot seems more purposeful, with the peddler being helped by the monkeys, but what young readers will find most amusing is his cluelessness at being followed by a huge herd of monkeys! I have to admit that as a long time fan of the first book, I found the afterword about the collaboration that lead to this volume more intriguing than the story itself.
Fans of Caps for Sale will not want to miss the new addition to the Slobodkina cannon!
