Reviewer: A reader from Akron, NY USA
Have you ever wondered what its like to meet a real live monkey. Well Jay Berry Lee got the chance to in this book, Summer on the Monkeys, by Wilson Rawls. For Jay Berry''s birthday he got an animal trap. He got this trap from his grandfather so he could go catch the lose circus monkeys and so grandfather could get the reward money.
Also in this book, Jay Berry''s little sister, Daisy, tells him that there is an Old Man of the Mountains. She told him that he was technically the leader of the mountains; in other words, he was the supervisor of the mountains. She also said that this Old Man of the Mountains is only visible to the people that believe in him. Daisy says he comes to visit her all the time. Jay Berry is so gullible that he believes there is really an Old Man of the Mountains.
The climax is when Jay Berry finds the monkeys. This was a funny occasion. People have a way of knowing what''s going to happen next. That''s what I like about this book; knowing something weird is going to happen next. If you really like mystery books, I encourage you to read this book, Summer of the Monkeys.


The Best Book I Ever Read!, March 17, 2000
Reviewer: Randy Oja from U.S.A.
The Summer Of the Monkeys is a very funny book about a boy named Jay Barry who tries to catch a bunch of monkeys. Jay was in the river bottoms near his house when he saw some monkeys in a tree. He was really surprised and ran home. His dad didn''t believe him so he ran to his grandpa''s store. His grandpa told him that a circus train got into a wreck and about thirty monkeys escaped. Jay tried to catch the monkeys maney times but the monkeys always out smarted him. Finally, after many tries he Jay Barry suceeded. I would recomend this book to anybody who read Where the Red Fern Grows or any other books by Wilso Rawls. I really liked this book because it made me laugh and it had intresting parts in it too.

The book Summer of the Monkeys is a book that sometimes can bring a tear to your eye. The author Wilson Rawls likes to do that in his books a lot. This book is about a boy that is fourteen years old. His name is Jay Berry and he lives in the river bottoms. He has a sister that was born with a crippled leg. His sister''s name is Daisy. Jay Berry has been saving money for almost his whole entire life for a 22 rifle and a horse. At his grandpa''s store, he saw a sign about lost monkeys and it was offering 2 dollars a monkey and a hundred dollars for one monkey called Jimbo. Jay Berry tried everything he could to catch them monkeys but the monkeys kept on tricking him. Read this book to find out if he finally catches the monkeys and gets his dream.
This book will make you laugh and make you cry. It is filled with adventure and excitement. You don''t want to miss it! by Josh
