Tugg, a gorilla, and Teeny, a monkey, are the stars of this early reader, which actually contains three short stories of the duo¿s adventures. Christopher Denise¿s illustrations are bright and engaging and are sure to be a hit. The storylines are a bit bland, though, and may not hold all readers¿ imaginations. The text and illustrations are cute but, taken together, are not always as in sync with each other as they could be. Still, this book is sure to be a delight for animal lovers, and fans have two other titles in the series to read. For ages 6-8. Additional purchase.
