    One thought on “Summer of the Monkeys

    1. Margitte on said:

      Oklahoma 1895. A young poor boy with a crippled little sister gets an opportunity to make things better when a group of monkeys escapes a circus wagon accident and he can make money by capturing them again.The young boy and his dog is in for some laughter and serious life lessons when the monkeys outsmart them on a daily basis. His grampa teaches him the core values in life. This is a kiddie's book - perhaps for readers up to twelve years of age. For me it was a wonderful, funny, deeply-moving-r [...]

    2. Patti on said:

      “Summer of the Monkeys” is the second of only two books by author Wilson Rawls. I’d always heard it was good, and I thoroughly enjoyed “Where the Red Fern Grows”, so it seemed like a good choice to pull from my ‘to-be-read shelf’. “Summer of the Monkeys” was better than good, it was absolutely wonderful! (And this comment comes from me, a person not interested in animal stories!) No question, one of the best books I’ve read this summer!This is a story of a young boy, Jay Berr [...]

    3. Michele on said:

      Disney ruined this book when they made it into a movie. The novel is vastly different and so much better. A great read aloud that will have you both laughing and crying. I like this book much better than, Where the Red Fern Grows, which the author is more known for.

    4. Manybooks on said:

      Now when we read both Wilson Rawls' Where the Red Fern Grows and Summer of the Monkeys in grade six, while most of my classmates seemed to prefer the former, I for one enjoyed Summer of the Monkeys rather more, mostly because it had a less heartbreaking ending (with Jay capturing the elusive circus escaped monkeys, his twin sister Daisy getting her necessary operation, and Jay also obtaining his two dearest wishes, a pony and a rifle, not to mention that Jay's relationship with his grandfather m [...]

    5. Lacie on said:

      Oooh. I have mixed feelings about this story. It's been sitting on my shelf for years, when it was first recommended to me as a perfect family read-aloud. So, I finally read it. In short, it's a jolly tale of rompin', rollickin' hilarity with just enough negative thrown in to keep it from being the perfect family read-aloud. The essentials. Meet Jay Berry. It's the late 1800s, and his family is farming on Oklahoma land, poor enough to make a fly weep. They're always struggling to make one end me [...]

    6. Pamela on said:

      "If a fellow didn't dream and hope . . . life would sure be miserable."Such a delightful coming-of-age story! A timeless classic One that lifts you up and reminds you to cherish those near and dear to you, loving family and friends with unselfish abandon, and to keep pressing forward towards your dreams, even when there are more than a few monkey wrenches in your plans. "I don't care what kind of problem a man has, he can always find the answer to it in the library. Somewhere, in one of those bo [...]

    7. Melora on said:

      Overflowing with folksy sentimentality, this is my all-time favorite “boy and his dog” story. The dog doesn't die, and the story has a completely happy ending! Things even come out well for the monkeys. Warm loving family interactions and chock full of mild, wholesome adventures, yet it's not boring. Rawls also wrote the more famous (and famously tragic) Where the Red Fern Grows, which was originally published in 1961 but whose sales did not “take off” until the early 70's. I've never un [...]

    8. Tweety on said:

      I cannot believe I had never even heard of this till three days ago. All I can say is to everyone is read it. Young, Old, Middle Aged, read it. Jay Berry is a Huckleberry Finn character, but instead of a river to get him into trouble he has a summer of monkeys that turn his world around and his family with him. He has a pretty awful time of it. What with monkeys running around and his sister's teasing.Daisy has an imagination gone wild, she sees The Old Man of the Mountain and uses him to scare [...]

    9. Nan Sprester on said:

      Summer of the Monkeys is my new favorite book. How in the world was I a school librarian for so many years without reading this book. What a great book for a novel study, for teaching voice, setting, use of language, point of view, etc. I want to run out and read it to somebody right now. Too bad I'm retired. It has a great lesson without being at all preachy. Just a wonderful, wonderful book. I wish Wilson Rawls had written more than two books.Some of my favorite lines:It was so still in our ki [...]

    10. Shauna on said:

      Summer of the Monkeys is one of my all time favorite books. The time period is in the late 1800's. It is about a 14 year old boy named Jay Berry who lives in the Ozark mountains. His life is full of adventure exploring in the river bottoms. His life is flipped upside down when he finds monkeys in the river bottoms. A train wreck allowed the monkeys to escape from the circus. There is a very large reward for the capture of the monkeys. Jay Berry sets out to capture these monkeys and get enough to [...]

    11. April Hochstrasser on said:

      Set in the late 1800's, this is a story about a young boy named Jay Berry and his run in with a troop of monkeys that have gotten loose in the woods near his home. He tries everything under the sun to capture the monkeys because there is a big reward. The monkeys seem to be able to outwit him at every turn, that is until the night of the big storm. The author, who also wrote "Where the Red Fern Grows", knows how to keep interest alive. Jay Berry and his loyal dog, Rowdy, learn something about mo [...]

    12. Doug Cannon on said:

      My kids really enjoy this book. It seems to hit all ages pretty well. I am enjoying it again, and my youngest two (who were bored while reading Seventh Son) are now really enjoying this book. Even my oldest kids enjoy listening in.Wilson Rawls is a great story teller, and he writes a lot of situations in this book that make the kids laugh out loud. The suspense is great too. The kids hate it when a chapter ends and we might be done for the night. "read on!" they all say.

    13. Denia Books and Baubles® on said:

      I loved this book. I love reading children classics. And since I work in Barnes and Noble in the kids department, it is very easy for me to find this wonderful reads. Loved this book. Definitively recommend it!!

    14. Lydia on said:

      This was a pretty quick, easy read. Makes you want to laugh,cry and cheermetimes all three at once.

    15. Dawson Lambert on said:

      My book is Summer Of The Monkeys by Wilson Rawls. It's about this boy Jay Berry Lee and he lives in hard working underclass family. Jay Berry is just your average farm boy until he realizes that there is valuable circus monkey down in the swamps on his land. He attempted to catch these monkeys multiple times with the help of his grandpa. Jay Berry knew that if he catches these monkeys he could get himself something nice or help out his family with the money. This book takes place in the 1800's r [...]

    16. Tammie on said:

      Wow! I could barely get through that last three chapters without crying the whole way throughEvery Mother and Son should read this book together. So touching and I am so glad I had this experience reading this to my sonAnd NO, I never read it as a kid.

    17. Stef Milenewicz on said:

      I bought this book to read to my 10 year old son. I didnt realize this book would become one of my favorites! I laughed so hard I cried, and I cried so hard I laughed!! Yes my sweet oldest son loved making fun of me! This book is such a wonderful story about a boy that is from a poor family, he goes on an adventure with his dog catching monkeys that got loose from the circus. His relationship with his family is such a great story all in itself, and will make you remember special times with your [...]

    18. Molly Jae on said:

      Hands down, this is one of the best books I've ever read. I don't know why I've never read it before and neither have any of my children. Thomas came home from school last week and said he had started it in class. Then I went to a RS night on children's literature and one of my girlfriends there also recommended it. I picked it up and read it in just 3 short sessions, and loved it. This book will make an excellent read aloud with children at about the age of 8 or 9, when they are starting to hav [...]

      Soooo much better than the movie.

    20. Cecilia on said:

      what an amazing and influential book. this fun and humorous novel will bring tears to your eyes and show how you can be happy with what you have. in most stories of a young boy turning into a young man we see a love interest but for this hearty jay berry hid love is passion for his family and daisy his sister. sure it isn't very realistic that these monkeys would get him drunk and steal his stuff but the idea of these monkeys being capable to do such things gives the book a humerus thrill that a [...]

    21. Kristine Raugust charette on said:

      I liked this book. It was an interesting idea, and my kids would have loved it, had I read it to them.

    22. P.S. Winn on said:

      Great young adult story from an author who also brought Where the Red fern grows, another awesome story

    23. Jonathan Price on said:

      Humorous and Inspiring Jay Berry just cracks me up. This book had me laughing on every page. And yet, scattered throughout are passages that inspire. Jay Berry learns about hard work, perseverance, prayer, reading the word of God, sacrifice, and love. It was truly a great read and one I look forward to reading to my kids as they get older.

    24. Michelle on said:

      I loved this book when I read it on my own when I was little, and I loved this book again reading it aloud with my boys. That Wilson Rawls makes me cry every time.

    25. Marty Reeder on said:

      ANOTHER READINGI think that I will always love Summer of the Monkeys more than you (whoever you are) because it was the first book that taught me that literature can be moving enough to make me cry (next book to confirm that: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn). I read it in sixth grade where the timing, emotion, and--of course--story of it all were magical and conspired to delight me before catching me off guard with its heart.So I knew I would read it with my kids, not for them but for me, and [...]

    26. Scott on said:

      As I was reorganizing some bookshelves, this childhood favourite was atop a pile on the library table. It enticed me to re-read it, for the first time since elementary school. This copy, given to me by my aunt Rhonda, is inscribed "Scotty Jones 6." I don't think I was quite that young when I actually read it.Set in Eastern Oklahoma, not far from the area I grew up in, this is the tell of a young boy, Jay Berry and his dog Rowdy who in the late 19th century experience a great adventure one summer [...]

    27. Brandon Willard on said:

      The genre of this book is fiction. I choose this book because it sounded pretty good. Jay Berry Lee lives with his Mom, Dad, and sister in Oklahoma Cherokee Ozark. It takes place during the 1800's. His Grandma and Grandpa live there too. His Grandpa owns a store in Cherokee Ozark. Jay lives on a farm and has a dog named Rowdy. One day he was in the bottoms and Rowdy treed a monkey which Jay had never seen a monkey in the bottoms before. Jay told his family about the monkey. His grandpa told him [...]

One summer Jay finds four chimps on the prairie who have fallen off a circus cart. He later learns that there is a big reward for them.

      This book is set in the late 1800's on an Oklahoma Farm.
