CAPS FOR SALE and the Mindful Monkeys


In the same folklore tradition as the classic Caps for Sale and its sequel, More Caps for Sale, comes a new story of the caps Peddler, the monkeys, and a whole lot of monkey business.

Now those mischievous monkeys who wore the Peddler’s wares in Caps for Sale just won’t leave him alone. As he walks through the streets selling his caps, the monkeys walk right behind him. Right foot, left foot. Right foot, left foot. As he walks back home at the end of the day, they trail along too. All in step. Those monkeys!

The Peddler is tired of their trouble and asks his friend Essie for advice. But Essie thinks the Peddler should give them one more chance before he decides they’re no good. Will the Peddler listen to Essie? And if he does, will he discover that she’s right?
