"Despite his somewhat frou-frou name, Chico Bon Bon is the most tool-savvy monkey around. . . Wide-eyed and widow's-peaked, Chico is a very likable little guy, vaguely spider-monkey-ish in appearance, and his attachment to his tool belt is clearly evident (he all but pats it lovingly as he tells it goodnight). Some of the tiny captions and illustrative details may be missed in a large group readaloud, but this would be an ideal readalone for fans of weird picture-book humor; just be sure to have the tool kit (or belt) ready and waiting for subsequent simian-tics."
