From the Publisher
Annotation All the cap peddler's caps are taken by monkeys, who put them on and perch high in a tree. How can the peddler get his merchandise back? Demands and threats don't work, but something else does. A wonderful book to read aloud.
First Line Once there was a peddler who sold caps. But he was not like an ordinary peddler carrying his wares on his back. He carried them on top of his head.
Editors Note A band of mischievous monkeys steals every one of a peddler's caps while he is taking a nap under a tree, in a delightful board-book rendition of the popular children's story.
