This book focuses on a fairly narrow topic; old world monkeys. The reading level of the text is probably appropriate for upper elementary students. However, I think it would still be appropriate for a middle school library. Each page is focused on a specific topic. The pictures and illustrations on the pages enhance the reading experience. Whether it is a photo of monkeys in a tree or a pencil sketch, all the graphics clearly support the text. At the back of the book is an index, which definitely gives this book a hard science feel to it. It isn't just a cute animal book; it has an index! Old World Monkeys was well planned and designed.
