A trio of misbehaving, mango-loving monkeys have a close call as the creator of Don’t Worry, Little Crab gives readers a taste of vicarious mischief.

Three little monkeys and their big monkey are sitting high on a branch in the forest canopy. “OK, monkeys! I’m off," says the big monkey.Remember . . . Whatever you do, do NOT go down to the mango tree. There are tigers down there.” Mmm . . . mangoes! think the little monkeys. They LOVE mangoes. Hmm . . . Maybe . . . maybe they could just look at the mangoes. That would be OK, right? With vivid colors, bold shapes, and his trademark visual humor, Chris Haughton is back with a deliciously suspenseful cautionary tale about pushing boundaries—and indulging your more impish side (when nobody is looking).

Praise For…

Perfect for group sharing. . . . Haughton’s skilled use of color, composition, and page-turns heightens the drama.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

The book’s suspense is built with careful pacing and the repetition of particular words. . . An impish adventure.
—Kirkus Reviews

This funny folkloric tale will cue audiences immediately. . . There’s electrical contrast in the collage-style digital art, with the blue monkeys popping against red, magenta, and orange backdrops that will easily make images visible at a distance in a lively storytime.
