soon he realizes that the monkeys that had caused so many problems earlier in the day had followed him home. Instead of causing problems, however, the monkeys mimicking the man’s actions actually help the peddler solve problems like cleaning up his yard and selling his caps.

Published in celebration of the 75th anniversary of Caps for Sale, More Caps for Sale continues the story of the peddler and the mischievous monkeys featured in the original classic picture book. The story used inspiration from the original authors, and the illustrations were scanned, extracted, and manipulated from Slobodkina’s paintings to create the illustrations of the book to match the ones in the first. More Caps for Sale has the same easy-to-read pattern, charming illustrations, and gentle humor that people who love the first book will be able to appreciate in the sequel.
