One Potato Review

The hero of Chris Monroe’s Monkey With a Tool Belt trilogy bears a passing resemblance to Curious George, but he’s a great deal more useful in the community than his mischievous forebear, who always seemed to come too easily to his popularity. Chico Bon Bon wears his tool belt like a résumé, though he manages to also summon a genuine delight at meeting the challenges Monroe puts before him – here he visits his friend Clark (the eponymous Noisy Problem in book two) and discovers a clumsy duck at the heart of one paradise’s energy dependency.
