Comments about Caps for Sale:
A good story that allows the reader lots of room for adding further drama and inspiration by having some fun with the story. Good story for a little acting to further engage children.
Good natured nonsense tale in text and pictures. The text is almost unnecessary as text and pictures tell the story of the peddler who fell asleep and had his whole stock in trade of colored caps stolen by the monkeys. And of how mere chance made him do the one thing that persuaded the monkeys to throw away the caps. (Kirkus Reviews)
