Soon Baboon Soon

by Dave  Horowitz

Published by Putnam, 2005
32 pages
ISBN: 0-399-24268-6

Ages 2-6

It’a a primate percussion extravaganza! The gorilla plays a gong. The chimpanzees are on timpani. “Orangutans bang everythang.” Each simian strikes a beat in turn as they play "Percussion of the Apes." But to baboon it seems as if his moment of musical glory will never come. Dave Horowitz’s hilarious picture book blends simplicity and silliness with a level of sophistication that will make it a favorite of young children and adults alike. The short, playful text uses rhythm, rhyme and onomatopoeia to convey the energy and excitement of the performance, while the brightly colored cut paper, colored pencil and charcoal illustrations are delightfully absurd but a little bit hip as well. These monkeys are cool cats! (MS) ©2005 Cooperative Children’s Book Center
