Immersive illustrations and witty words make this graphic novel fun for early readers and their adults reading aloud. Grumpy Monkey: Who Threw That? is great for those new to chapter books, and brings along all kinds of life lessons about honesty, good communication, teamwork, and understanding what's really important. There are facts about primates and a delicious, easy recipe for treats that young readers can make.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
