Monkey: a Trickster Tale from India by Gerald McDermott

Readers may recognize this story which was told & illustrated by Paul Galdone (The Monkey and the Crocodile) back the ’60s. Monkey tricks crocodile into taking him across the river to get to the mango trees. Crocodile thinks he will make a snack out of monkey, but he has another think coming. This traditional Jataka tale from India has been newly told and illustrated by Gerald McDermott. As in the style of his other trickster tales, McDermott uses bright colors, collage illustration and child-friendly text.
