What weabout it
Monkeys play tricks on a poor hat peddler in this timeless classic, and every second is filled with irresistible charm and warmth.


This book really has it all. The vibrant color palette fills the story with energy and warmth, and the casual linework makes the pastoral setting feel like a playful friend.

Into this landscape enters a poor but clever cap peddler, his wears stacked on his own head. That image is enough to capture a kid’s imagination, but when the monkeys arrive on the scene, it’s comedy gold.

The resolution is an exercise in problem solving, but at its heart, this book (originally published over 50 years ago) isn’t a lesson—it’s an unforgettable experience.
