{What Is Inside THIS Box?: Drew Daywalt}

{Synopsis} – Meet Monkey and Cake.
Cake has lots of questions. Monkey has lots of answers.
They are silly. They are curious.
Sometimes they fight.
But Monkey and Cake are always best friends.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Day the Crayons Quit and The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors, Drew Daywalt, and illustrator Olivier Tallec, comes a fresh new duo Monkey and Cake. In this book, Monkey and Cake cannot agree what’s inside Monkey’s mysterious box. Is it a kitty? Is it a dinosaur? How will they find out — and what do you think is inside?

With Daywalt’s signature quirky style, the relatable humor of Elephant and Piggie, and the wise friendship of Frog and Toad, Monkey and Cake invites readers to laugh along and let their imaginations soar.

{My thoughts} – Monkey and Cake are a couple of fun characters. They are a couple of friends that discuss believing things without being able to see them. This is a really neat lesson for children to understand. Seeing without believing is often referenced throughout different religions as well as the magic of any holiday.

The cover of this book is bright yellow and eye catching. The illustrations are simple and explain what is going on throughout the book. The text is written in word bubbles similar to what I’d call a beginners graphic novel.

I recommend this book as a beginner reader. It has simple sentences structure and words for children to easily read. It doesn’t have doesn’t have many difficult words that would need to be explained. If the book is read to or with the child on a regular basis they should be able to grasp what most of the words mean by looking at the pictures. I think this is a wonderful new book series and I can’t wait to introduce it to my daughters.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
