More Caps for Sale
Esphyr Slobodkina & Ann Marie Mulhearn Sayer
40pp., pbk., RRP $A14.99
More than 75 years since the original favourite Caps for Sale was published, comes a sequel based on story ideas shared with Ann Marie Mulhearn Sayer throughout their years as friends and business associates prior to Esphyr’s death in 2002. The pedlar is back with his checked cap, and his stack of grey, brown, blue and red caps perched on his head, having finally got them back since the monkeys stole them in the original story. And the monkeys are there too, mocking his every move. But the pedlar is very unhappy because he hasn’t sold any caps. Will the monkeys help him or cause him more bother?
Young readers will delight in being introduced to the original of this classic story and then following that with the reading of the sequel with a storyline, artwork and colours which echo the original. A classic ready for a new generation of fans.
