Where is it?

From the author of The Day the Crayons Quit comes a groundbreaking new friendship series!

Meet Monkey and Cake.
Cake has lots of questions. Monkey has lots of answers.
They are silly. They are curious.
Sometimes they fight.
But Monkey and Cake are always best friends.
But Monkey and Cake are always best friends.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Day the Crayons Quit and The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors, Drew Daywalt, and illustrator Olivier Tallec, comes a fresh new duo Monkey and Cake. In this book, Monkey and Cake cannot agree what's inside Monkey's mysterious box. Is it a kitty? Is it a dinosaur? How will they find out -- and what do you think is inside?

With Daywalt's signature quirky style, the relatable humor of Elephant and Piggie, and the wise friendship of Frog and Toad, Monkey and Cake invites readers to laugh along and let their imaginations soar.

School Library Journal Review
K-Gr 2-Daywalt returns with a new entry in the easy reader series featuring best friends Monkey and Cake. In this title, Cake builds a fort from chairs and a blanket meant only for cakes. While Monkey begs and pleads, Cake will not let him in, hurting Monkey's feelings. Eventually, Cake realizes the wide world he is missing out on outside of his fort, and he and Monkey reunite to have some fun. The "Monkey & Cake" books will no doubt draw comparisons to similarly quirky series like "Elephant and Piggie," "Ballet Cat," and "Narwhal and Jelly," with their bright colors and use of speech bubbles. Daywalt endearingly weaves humorous elements with friendship foibles young readers will relate to, as Monkey and Cake figure out how to navigate feeling left out. With one to two short sentences per page, this is an ideal option for beginning readers but would be effective shared one-on-one or with a group. VERDICT This silly, sweet tale of friendship is a first purchase for emerging reader collections.-Kathryn Justus, -Renbrook School, West Hartford, CT © Copyright 2019.
