Summer of the Monkeys by Wilson Rawls

The last thing Jay Berry expects to find this summer is a tree full of monkeys, and he pays little attention to them. That is, until he finds out those monkeys are worth big money.  Just enough money to buy the .22 shotgun and horse Jay's been wanting since he can remember.  But the monkeys will stop at nothing to keep from getting caught. Can Jay Berry catch all the monkeys and get the prize money?  Will he finally get the horse and shotgun he's been dreaming of?

Summer of the Monkeys is the only book that ever that made me cry. It's one of the best books I've ever read.  Considering I'm a boy and I don't usually cry, it must be.  Summer of the Monkeys may even be better than Where the Red Fern Grows.  You HAVE to read this book!  It's a HAVE-TO read.  No option.

Young Bibliomaniac gives Summer of the Monkeys 5 STARS!

I am so glad your mom shared your blog with us. I am always looking for good books my kids can read. It is great to get the recommendation from someone their age. You have probably already read this but in case you haven't, you need to read Candy Shop Wars by Brandon Mull. We read it this summer as a family and loved it! I will look forward to more reviews. Thanks!
