As a lover of the printed word and the feel of a real book, this gem makes me giddy. Your cast: a jackass, a mouse and a monkey. Really complex illustrations are one things but sometimes it is so much more powerful to have really well done simple but dynamic illustrations, this is one of those times. There is such character within each animal that you feel like you’ve met them and know their personality. This one has gotten a lot of press and I think it deserves it.
