Have you ever wondered why adults have so many restrictions set in place? Perhaps these rules exist for a reason… but maybe not. Maybe is a story about three curious monkeys who ignore their mother’s warning and venture out to a restricted area. When their mother tells them they “can’t” go down to the mango tree where the hungry lions lurk, the trio become hyper focused on eating delicious mangos. At first they exercise caution and keep a watchful eye out for hidden creatures. The mischievous monkeys let their guard down and enjoy a feast of delicious fruit far below the safety of the trees. Suddenly, ravenous lions pounce towards the monkeys and chase them all around the jungle.

The author and illustrator, Chris Hauton uses lighthearted humor and simple dialogue to express the danger of disobeying your parents. This story will capture the attention of children ages three to six while teaching children to exercise caution when leaving the safety of their home. Haughton’s colorful and bright images illuminate each page while capturing the playful, carefree nature of young children.
