Read full description of the books Monkey Business:This book is awesome. Each page features a literal illustration of an English idiom, like "monkey business" or "rise to the occassion" or "sweet tooth." And every illustration includes a monkey, usually quite well hidden. There is so much to look at in every illustration. Between that and wrapping their little brains around idiomatic expressions they've probably heard but never thought about before, this isn't a book kids will get bored with any time soon. Oh, and it features a cricket named Gavin (illustrating "snug as a bug in a rug").
