A band of mischievous monkeys steals every one of a peddler's caps while he takes a nap under a tree.
The peddler wakes up bright and early, ready to begin his day and sell some caps. But everyone in town is missing. Where could they be? Then he realizes they must be at the county fair, and he rushes off to sell his caps to the crowd. Instead of selling, though, he finds himself caught in the middle of a circus on parade. And before he knows it, he and his caps are one of the star acts!
Esphyr Slobodkina's classic artwork and timeless story are as endearing as ever in this new, refreshed edition. Come to the circus, one and all -- but don't forget those caps are for sale!
