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