When the mayor of a very tidy town notices a single flower out of place, Fussy Great Ape helpfully offers to fix it...but he demolishes the rest of the flowerbed in the process. He doesn't want the mayor to worry. He sounds off the ape call to action--"Bogo! Pogo! Apes-A-Go-Go!"and Mucky Great Ape turns up to replant the flowers. Now the flowers look lovely…but now the entire town is covered in dirt!
Well, its clear what this problem calls for. More apes!
These eager apes have the best intentions, but theyre heaping disaster upon disaster. Can they work together to return this town to its formerly tidy glory?
Roman Milisic is one half of the avant-garde fashion label House of Diehl. He lives and works in New York. This is his first picture book.
A. Richard Allen is a Society of Illustrators Gold and Silver award winner. He is best known for his work in advertising and in the press. He lives and works in Bournemouth, Dorset.
"Milisic's debut is goofy and endearing. Allen's muddy pastel illustrations look like a long-lost Saturday morning cartoon designed by James Thurber. Gently whack-a-doodle, sure to leave little listeners aping the giant apes."--Kirkus Reviews
"Milisics text has a nice, gentle rhythm to it . . . Allens pastel illustrations have a retro feel, which will make this a popular choice for parents with nostalgia for the cartoons of their youth. A silly story that young readers will go ape for!"--School Library Journal
