Now the tables have turned, and opening the book is the only way to save the group of monkeys who are trapped between its pages. This irresistibly entertaining rescue effort puts power in the hands of the page-turner, and giggles into everyone

"These monkeys are a RIOT And their books are funny, too " --Ame Dyckman

In Warning: Do Not Open This Book! Lehrhaupt begged readers not to allow the animals in that book to escape; now, the animals plead with children to leave this book open, so they arent trapped inside. Lehrhaupts humor is sharper this time around, even edgya toucan and gator wear bandages, suggesting that shutting a book doesnt just trap characters, it injures them. Set against black backgrounds, Forsythes digital artwork is equally attuned to the slightly sadistic mood. As books end approaches, he delivers an extreme close-up of a dewy-eyed monkey making its desperate plea to readers: Well be good. Promise. Ages 48.
