Summary
Recipient of the Wanda Gag Read Aloud Book Award

They told you, but you just couldn't listen--so the creators of Warning: Do Not Open This Book! are back with a zany monkey crew, and they need your help!

In Warning, Do Not Open This Book! , which School Library Journal called "more fun than a barrel of monkeys," turning pages meant increased chaos and delight. Now the tables have turned, and opening the book is the only way to save the group of monkeys who are trapped between its pages. This irresistibly entertaining rescue effort puts power in the hands of the page-turner, and giggles into everyone!

"These monkeys are a RIOT! And their books are funny, too!" --Ame Dyckman
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In contrast to the bright pages of their popular Warning! Do Not Open This Book (2013), here the mood, along with the interior, is dark. And why not? A group of animals are stuck inside, someone having closed the book with them in it. Monkey, who bears a resemblance to Mr. Potato Head, is an almost hysterical narrator, and when he is most insistent, the font of his words increases and exclamation marks appear. Kids, who will love being in on the joke, will enjoy the illustrations that prove the damage a closed book creates: an alligator in a sling, a toucan with a bandaged beak, a much bruised banana. The collagelike illustrations, rendered digitally, have slightly blurred, soft hues, as if they have lost some crispness through rejection, and are set against black pages. Tension rises as those pages are turned, because they will eventually lead to . . . the closing of the book. Pair with Press Here, by Hervé Tullet (2013), for another opportunity for direct reader involvement, or Mo Willems' We Are in a Book! (2010) to meet another self-conscious narrator.--Ching, Edie Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Warning: Do Not Open This Book! Lehrhaupt begged readers not to allow the animals in that book to escape; now, the animals plead with children to leave this book open, so they aren't trapped inside. Lehrhaupt's humor is sharper this time around, even edgy-a toucan and gator wear bandages, suggesting that shutting a book doesn't just trap characters, it injures them. Set against black backgrounds, Forsythe's digital artwork is equally attuned to the slightly sadistic mood. As book's end approaches, he delivers an extreme close-up of a dewy-eyed monkey making its desperate plea to readers: "We'll be good. Promise." Ages 4-8.
