When Russian-American illustrator Esphyr Slobodkina published Caps for Sale in 1940, millions of children savored the adventures of the peddler, his towering hat made of caps, and a band of very funny monkeys who won't leave him alone. Basing her images on Slobodkina's art, Ann Marie Mulhearn Sayer helps readers up to 7 to return to this quirky world, where the distinguished peddler maintains an orderly, dignified existence, despite being followed everywhere by fun-loving simians. In the most memorable image here, the monkeys curl up and fall asleep on every branch of an enormous tree.
