Chimps Don't Wear Glasses

Chimps Don't Wear Glasses

by Laura Numeroff Illustrated by Joe Mathieu

Even though animals do not normally wear glasses, cook, or read, if you use your imagination you can see them doing these and even more fantastic things This hysterical trip into the imaginary is hilariously and gleefully illustrated. Sure to evoke laughter and the creative urge, children are encouraged by the end of this festive rhyme to create their own craziness!

"Kids will eat up this companion to Dogs Don't Wear Sneakers. A hilarious imagination stretcher . . . sure to be a hit with the story hour set. — School Library Journal
