Cute book. I like the idea of it. ( )

Reviewed by Me for Kids @ TeensReadToo.com

In this charming story, we witness the side-by-side day of two monkeys, Ed and Ted. Ed's day starts out rather splendid, while Ted's day, on the other hand, is not so splendid, indeed.

What follows is the day's adventures with Ed and Ted, with the nice and not so nice characters they meet, and the fun and not so fun predicaments they get themselves into.

My children enjoyed LUCKY MONKEY, UNLUCKY MONKEY, especially the humorous sidebars filled with such illuminating information as "it's difficult for monkeys to make everything they say rhyme all the time," and "it is an extremely bad idea to play with a strange dog that is growling and snarling so that its large, sharp white teeth show."

This is a fun book for kids of all ages, especially those who may feel that a bad day will never end. Trust Ed and Ted -- for every bad day, there's a good one. And sometimes, even good days end on a decidedly bad note! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618631534, Hardcover)

This story is about Ed and Ted, two thinking, speaking, fully clothed, house-dwelling monkeys. One day, Ed walks out of his just-the-right-size-for-a-monkey house. He is greeted by a bright, sunny day, with butterflies fluttering about and cute, friendly animals cheerfully hopping around.
Meanwhile . . . Ted walks out of his just-the-right-size-for-a-monkey house and is met by a forbidding sky with dark clouds, large insects swarming about, and frightening vermin crawling around.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:05:28 -0400)

While Ed the monkey has the most wonderful day imaginable, Ted the monkey faces everything from bad weather to being chased by wild animals and an angry troll.
