Baby Monkey, Private Eye

By Brian Selznick and David Serlin

 

Reading Level: 1st – 3rd     

 

        If you have a mystery that needs to be solved, Baby Monkey is the detective for you!

        Baby Monkey can find the opera singer’s missing jewels, the cook’s missing pizza, the clown’s missing nose, and the astronaut’s missing spaceship.  In fact, the only thing that gives Baby Monkey any trouble is his pants!  They are so difficult to put on!

        Baby Monkey, Private Eye may look like a chapter book on the outside, but the reading level and the controlled vocabulary make this a great book for young readers.    Brian Selznick, who is known for his award-winning illustrations in the chapter books The Invention of Hugo Cabret and Wonderstruck, will entertain readers with his detailed illustrations of the hilarious Baby Monkey.
