Whether you need a beebersaw or a chisel, Chico Bon Bon’s your monkey. He can build or fix just about anything—from a dock for the ducks to a clock for the Clucks, even a small roller coaster for local chipmunks. Chris Monroe’s quirky hero and detailed illustrations will absorb readers in a series of entertaining adventures that shows there is an inventive way out of every problem—if you have the right tools. These picture books inspired a new series coming to Netflix in May called Chico Bon Bon: Monkey with a Tool Belt!
