Summary, etc.: Mr. Monkey bakes a cake and enters it in a contest, but nothing goes as planned.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 May #1
    Mack kicks off an easy-reader series with a sweet and delicious romp. Mr. Monkey—portrayed in the simply drawn, brightly colored cartoon illustrations as a furry human with a monkey's head and tail—makes a banana cake, but chows down on so many bananas in the process that he can't eat it. And so (with his noisy stomach's advice) he decides to enter it in a cake contest instead. Because of obstacles along the way, by the time Mr. Monkey arrives, the contest is over. Will there be no blue ribbon for Mr. Monkey? Never say never: a huge, angry gorilla smashes all the other cakes in a frosting-spattered hullabaloo, but then peaceably peels a ribbon off his butt and exchanges it for Mr. Monkey's last banana. Showing true nobility of spirit, Mr. Monkey proceeds to pass the ribbon on to a small, brown-skinned child who has likewise arrived late . . . and, with his next step, meets up with a fateful banana peel. Just desserts for Mr. Monkey, whose adventures continue in the copublished Mr. Monkey Visits a School. Grades K-1. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
