Description

Life's pretty good on Monkey Island. All day long, the monkeys sit around talking their monkey talk and enjoying their big-time monkey dreams.

That is, except Oswego Pete, who is one slick monkey.

He's bent on finding the Easy Life-a place where a monkey never has to bend all out of shape for a banana, or do any hard work, ever.

Is it where the high grass grows at the foot of the mountain?

Or down by the seaside?

Uh-Huh Freddie, the Chief Monkey, says easy isn't always good, and a little hard work's not always bad.

Who's right?

You will learn how to find the Easy Life in this witty adventure from popular author Walter Dean Myers and artist Lee Harper.

Review quote

Praise for Woolbur: "Wonderful artwork." -- ALA Booklist Praise for Woolbur: "Harper's lumpy, expressive ovines, especially the wild-wooled Woolbur, bring Helakoski's delightful tale of independence to life." -- Kirkus Reviews Praise for Woolbur: "Debut artist Harper's quirky illustrations...meet the challenge." -- Publishers Weekly Praise for Woolbur: "Woolbur is a testament to individuality. Harper's amusing illustrations contribute to that fun with subtle details." -- School Library Journal Praise for Muhammad Ali: The People's Champion: "The spirit of prizefighter Muhammad Ali, formerly known as Cassius Clay, permeates the action-filled pages." -- School Library Journal Praise for Ida B. Wells: "Important and inspiring." -- School Library Journal (starred review) Praise for Ida B. Wells: "Masterful." -- ALA Booklist Praise for Ida B. Wells: "Accessible to younger elementary audiences." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

About Lee Harper

Walter Dean Myers was the New York Times bestselling author of Monster, the winner of the first Michael L. Printz Award; a former National Ambassador for Young People's Literature; and an inaugural NYC Literary Honoree. Myers received every single major award in the field of children's literature. He was the author of two Newbery Honor Books and six Coretta Scott King Awardees. He was the recipient of the Margaret A.

Lee Harper is an illustrator, and sometimes author-illustrator, of a flock of picture books. He still likes going to school, but nowadays when he goes to school it's as a visiting author. He drives there in a regular car but wishes he could get there on a hay wagon like Woolbur. Learn more about Lee Harper's books and school visits at www.leeharperart.com.
