Junior can climb faster and higher than any other boy in his neighbourhood. There is nothing he enjoys more than climbing his neighbours' fruit trees to steal their apples, mangoes, oranges, june plums and guineps when they are away from home. His mother and Mr. Roy warn him to stop but he does not listen. One day, Junior ends up "biting off more than he can chew" because of his disobedience. The lesson he learns is one that can serve as an example to other little boys just like him.

Hard-Ears Junior Learns A Lesson is meant to be a teaching tool for parents, teachers, mentors and adults, in general, who are encouraged to read it aloud to children. Children will be afforded the opportunity to gain knowledge of new, multi-syllabic words, their meanings and correct spelling and pronunciation, thereby building their vocabulary and enhancing their ability to communicate articulately from an early age.
