Review: I love this new series it’s great, I loved that it had great lessons and lots to learn, a fun simple mystery and interesting diverse characters.
I loved that the first assignment these kids had was simply to watch the monkeys and figure out what was wrong with them. It was great that together Katy and Micah had to observe and learn to be able to figure it out and make things better for the monkeys.
I really loved the illustrations with this as well, I loved seeing the sweet monkeys. This is a fun series and I know lots of animal loving young readers will really enjoy this one. I look forward to reading more in this series in the future.
