and illustrator Olivier Tallec, comes a fresh new duo Monkey
and Cake. With Daywalt’s signature quirky style, Monkey and Cake

Publisher Review

Praise for What Is Inside THIS Box? (Monkey and Cake): * "On the theory that it's never too early to start considering the deep questions... eventually, in easy-to-follow steps, [Cake] comes around to the only logical position: that whatever is or is not in the box is more a matter of belief than something provable." -- Booklist, starred review "EXUBERANT, EXPRESSIVE AND FULL OF PHILOSOPHICAL INQUIRY... 4- to 8-year-olds will practice not only simple sentences but also a thought experiment... in a humorous coda, readers discover what seems to be the impossible truth." --- The Wall Street Journal "Daywalt (The Day the Crayons Quit) and Tallec (This Book Will Not Be Fun) have crafted a delightful, philosophical romp that will please and intrigue beginning readers.... Funny and thought-provoking. A definite purchase for beginning reader collections." --- School Library Journal Praise for The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors * "Purely absurd, sidesplitting humor." -- Booklist, starred review * "The sort of story that makes children love to read." -- School Library Journal, starred review Praise for The Day the Crayons Quit Amazon's 2013 Best Picture Book of the Year Winner of the E.B. White Read-Aloud Award * "These memorable personalities will leave readers glancing apprehensively at their own crayon boxes." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review "Utterly original." -- San Francisco Chronicle Praise for This Book Will Not Be Fun, illustrated by Olivier Tallec: * "Tallec's artwork... is impeccably turned out." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
