Monkey & Robot
Written & Illustrated by Peter Catalanotto

Grade Level: 1 – 4
Are you looking for a fun early chapter book for beginning readers? Something with two great friends that’s as much fun to read as FROG & TOAD or GEORGE & MARTHA? You found it! Monkey is silly like Frog, and Robot is more like Toad. Together they work their way through simple problems in four short chapters/stories. Monkey & Robot are now a trio of three fun books for young readers.
PS – When I posted this review on social media, I got two responses from its author/illustrator Peter Catalanotto. On Twitter he wrote, “Thank you for the wonderful review—I’ve always loved Frog and Toad—I refer to them in my Columbia writing course often—so for you to place these two in their company was quite an honor!” And I thought I was the one who was thrilled!
PPS – On Instagram he wrote, “Thank you! I’m currently working on the fourth book of their antics and adventures.” I said, “I will add that to my review. Readers will want to know!”
