There's a little (or big) Grumpy Monkey in all of us. Over the past few years, the mush-able mammal from the minds of Suzanne and Max Lang has swung into our hearts and Jim Panzee, Norman and their jungle of friends have become a staple for story time. Now, Jim Panzee gives a fun, new take on fear. The only thing to be scared of is missing out on this monkey mania.
On the spookiest night of the year, Jim Panzee and his jungle friends brave the dark to collect treats. Not only does the jungle look different at night, it sounds different. What’s that knock-knock-knock and that HAHA HAHA HAHA? And the smell? PEE-YEW! “Don’t be scared,” they tell Jim. But then two glowing eyes flash overhead, and looking for treats is almost abandoned.
Halloween in the jungle can be even scarier than trick-or-treating in your own neighborhood.
