Booklist Review

Histrionics is definitely the order of the day when the stolen flashlight Bobo the monkey (or, possibly, tarsier?) is playing with suddenly stops working. Ooooh! says Fifi the koala. You're in . . . TROUBLE! In wild panic, Bobo bounds across Gosier's blocky cartoon zoo scenes, proclaiming his culpability and begging the unresponsive other animals for help in ever larger, louder type. Fifi saunters along behind: Bobo BROKE the zookeeper's flashlight. And I'm gonna tell! Responding to Bobo's frantic pleas, she finally agrees not to. But, she says, pointing out at viewers, I can't promise that THEY won't tell. Are you going to tell? asks Bobo and collapses in despair: YOU ARE??!! Like the classic The Monster at the End of This Book, the episode banks on the schadenfreude of young audiences. Here, at least, the author turns the tables on the tattler by trotting in the zookeeper at the end to, with notable lack of drama, fix the flashlight with a fresh set of batteries. Now who's in trouble? Prime material for a melodramatic, over-the-top read-aloud.--John Peters Copyright 2019 Booklist
