Pros: Written in 1940, this is a simple tale of a cap peddler who takes a nap under a tree only to have his wares stolen by monkeys, and how he gets them back. The illustrations are charming and there is a lot of repetition to help new readers follow the story. Children giggle at the monkeys' antics every time.
