Baby Monkey, Private Eye

“Now Baby Monkey is ready!”


I’ve a review over at BookPage of David Serlin’s and Brian Selznick’s Baby Monkey, Private Eye (Scholastic, February 2018) — part picture book, part graphic novel, and part beginning reader. If you’re so inclined to go read about it, that review is here. I’m following up here at 7-Imp today with a bit of art from it.

I also noticed recently over at Kirkus that Megan Labrise talked to both David and Brian about this book. That is here. I love how they describe it as a book with no elevator pitch. Yep. That pretty much covers it.
