Maniac Monkeys on Magnolia Street book review Angela Johnson award winning author Charlene Billy chapter books Random House kids Kidzworld eight to eleven year olds jungle animals monkey sloth tiger parrots

Author: Angela Johnson

Charlene has just moved to a new neighborhood, she doesn't know anyone and she misses her old house. But it doesn't take long for Charlene, who prefers to be called Charlie, to meet the boy who will become her new best friend. Maniac Monkeys on Magnolia Street follows Charlie and her new friend Billy all over Magnolia Street on some crazy adventures. This is a great book for Kidzworld's younger members who are looking for an interesting, easy-to-read chapter book.

Each chapter in Maniac Monkeys on Magnolia Street is it's own separate story. So the great thing about this book is, if you get tired or bored with one chapter, you can skip it and start the next one without missing a thing. The chapters are only about 15-20 pages long and each chapter has a picture of Charlie and Billy, which helps to put you right there in the story with these two adventurous characters.

My favorite chapter in Maniac Monkeys on Magnolia Street was called The Pumpkin Box and was all about Charlie and Billy going on a digging expedition in the empty lot across from Charlie's house. They go looking for sabertooth tiger bones but find something entirely different. It reminded me so much of those days in the sandbox with my little sis, digging for treasures of our own for hours and hours.

Maniac Monkeys on Magnolia Street is a fun book but is definitely targeted to a younger age group, say eight to 11 year-olds. Then again, when is anyone too old for a picture book?

Sims 4 for sure! I've played Sims 3 for a while now, and bought Sims 4 while it was on sale on Origin, and I must say I adored Sims 3, but now I find myself always on the Sims 4! I love the building, it's much smoother and slick and now that there's toddlers all we need is pets and seasons! Not to mention the graphics are much more colourful and it's just a fabulous game over-all. But, I compeltly recommend Sims 4, even though Sims 3 is still a wonderful game.
