Summer of the Monkeys
This well-written classic features clean language and content and a heartwarming story. Fourteen-year-old Jay Berry lives on a farm in the Ozarks. When a circus train crashes in his area and all the monkeys escape, a large reward is offered for the monkeys. As Jay and his dog try to track the monkeys down, the reader is taken on a journey of adventure. I love the wonderful relationship of Jay and his grandfather and Jay’s persistence and hard work. This story is slower than most stories today, so not all readers will love it.
