Review Quotes




A 2016 ALSC Notable Children's Book

Tackling a topic as general as monkeys is a tall order for a picture book, but this one succeeds admirably. [...] Davey keeps things lively by relating specific traits of various monkey species [...] and these serve not only to pique readers' curiosity, but also to highlight the primates' diversity. The design of the book is stellar, interweaving text and stylized-but-accurate illustrations into a vibrant, cohesive whole that stands out for its appeal and clarity. A vast amount of information on monkeys is expertly delivered in both text and image without patronizing either readers or monkeys--a delight.
--Kirkus, Starred Review

A semi-irreverent tone and stylish images combine to create an arresting and informative guide to simian nature.
--Publisher's Weekly

Full of bared fangs, long tails and witty descriptions, this elegant book is likely to commend itself even to readers a good deal older than those for whom it is designed.
--Wall Street Journal

Davey's striking illustrations and bold graphic design are the highlights of this compendium of facts about monkeys. He deftly draws on their varied and unusual physical features to produce eye-catching images that will attract browsers.
--School Library Journal

Owen Davey presents a stunning and richly informative primer on these marvelous primates. [...] With art that calls to mind Charley Harper and the golden age of mid-century children's book illustration, Davey explores the glorious diversity of these weird and wonderful creatures, their sophisticated social life, and their elaborate communication style [...]
--Brain Pickings

This nonfiction picture book colorfully and innovatively educates readers about various types of monkeys from around the world without being pedantic. Jazzy illustrations resembling a graphic arts styled poster accurately depict several species of monkeys. [...] helpful examples, guiding illustrations, and comical phrases like "'But why such colorful bums?' I hear you ask" will leave readers feeling like they are on a lively safari.
--OmniLibros

Over 250 species are explored in this book, with Davey's signature illustration style that is engaging and attractive to readers of all ages. As per usual, there is information about conservation at the end of the book. This is an important part of all the animal books the author works on!
--The Tiny Activist
