Meet the Howlers
( by April P. Sayre/ illus. Woody Miller, Charlesbridge $16.95 Score: )

Told in both verse and prose, the lively story of the Howlers monkeys can be shared with both young listeners and older readers. Many of the verse portions compare the life of the monkey young to that of boys and girls; i.e. they never need a bath since their suits are wash-and-wear. The muted and somewhat fuzzy art shows their active ways, swinging, clinging, leaping and bouncing; doing what monkeys do. Among the most interesting facts, despite their name, only the male monkeys actually howls and not until they are fully grown. Apparently they use their voices to announce its territory and avoid fights with other families. Since they live in rain forests of Central and South America, these are the monkeys one is likely to encounter on a trip to the tropics. 4-7.
