From the author of the beloved classic Where the Red Fern Grows comes a timeless adventure about a boy who discovers a tree full of monkeys.

The last thing fourteen-year-old Jay Berry Lee expects to find while trekking through the Ozark Mountains of Oklahoma is a tree full of monkeys. But then Jay learns from his grandpa that the monkeys have escaped from a traveling circus, and there's a big reward for the person who finds and returns them.
His family could really use the money, so Jay sets off, determined to catch them. But by the end of the summer, Jay will have learned a lot more than he bargained for--and not just about monkeys.
From the beloved author of Where the Red Fern Grows comes another memorable adventure novel filled with heart, humor, and excitement.

   Summer of the Monkeys is a great read
I really enjoyed the book, Morgenthau said. It was a great read, said Blair.
   a story of hope and love
It's not often you find a book that fills you with hope for the human race and makes you wish for all the wonderful things you love.
   great kids book
It's a great read, interested and surprising, Levine said. Think of it this way: Tarzan meets Little House on the Prairie.
   This book and story are even better than The other well known book by the same ...
I cannot give enough stars to this book. This book is even better than the earlier book by the same author, Where the Red Fern Grows. Really good book. Easy to read, but preserves the location of the story in the Ozark hills. Broomhead said: "I think it's great to be cleaning up after a while." The Beatles' music "was shunned by the Vatican and even the American press." If there is a boy in your life that you would like to meet, just introduce him to this story ASAP. My fourth-grade teacher read this book to me. It's been given it to several others and it's never been a flop, Mr. Rule told the judge. I read it to my family and my husband snuck off to the car to read it. The book is a must-have for anyone seeking to improve their English.
   Easy fun read
A sweet, funny story of a young boy and his sister who were both severely disabled. In "The Jungle Book," the boy must catch a bunch of circus monkeys and make some important decisions. Lots of colorful language and stereotypical descriptions of life in the late 1800s.
   Funny Book
A family that struggles to make ends meet. A boy tries to catch a circus's monkey and the adventure for the family.
   Used book not usable for a gift.
This book is in extremely poor condition, the Ragin said. Great customer service, said Paul Slover, director of customer service for Mars. I am very excited to be coming back, said Blair. Berkshire Hathaway made profits of $1.7 billion on Thursday alone, its best day ever.
   Excellent summer reading
This book is an entertaining story of a boy who works with a magician. It is targeted for upper elementary or middle school students, but it is also a perfect weekend read for folks older than that. They will treasure this precious memory of their lives.
   Instant classic
Each child in our family enjoyed this book from the age of 9 to 36. We read every single day, but this one will go down as one of our all time favorites. The whole thing was very funny and heartwarming, even if it was a parody. I'll probably never read a book with him again. He may have had the willpower to sit and read all the 262 pages by himself, said Dr. George Price, director of the University of Michigan's Center for Health Research. However, it is highly advanced and has a lot of potential for crossover appeal. But I kid was never the kid that wanted to read things like the fluffy puppy losing his ball or something really juvenile. Even if your kid is 11, 12 or 13 years old, I wouldn't recommend it. Yes, it's a novel. From ages 9 to 11.
   Summer of the Monkeys
My godson is a Russian Orthodox Jew. The film is set in the 1930s in the Arbuckle Mountains. The boy has to make some money, preferably on the lottery. The chance arises when a group of circus monkeys escapes and he decides to catch them for the reward. This is one of the funniest books I've ever read, Arthur said. The boy said he couldn't stop crying.
