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.


"From an old folk tale [the author] has fashioned this bright picture book, infusing it with a humor which seems to have sprung from her own hearty enjoyment of the troubles of a peddler with a abnd of monkeys."" --The New York Times

Susan Whelan on
A classic that your kids will love. My kids can't decide whether to side with the tired peddlar or the cheeky monkeys when we read this. The illustrations are simple and the text is easy to read. The kids love that the peddlar finally tricks the monkeys into giving him his hats back.
This is a great book - a funny and unusual tale with really cool illustrations. I remember this book vividly from my childhood and my kids now have it as a favourite.

Love it! I remember having this story read to me when i was a little girl. Children love the ability to predict what comes next with the repetition in the story! Im sure that we will read it over and over again and has led to various craft and literacy experiences in the classroom.
Kylie Rischitelli on
We have read this book for many years at my preschool. The children love it because it is repetitive and easy to follow. We have actually acted it out as our end of year concert item, with all children from many cultures able to have a part of a cheeky monkey.
I highly recommend it.
