Caps For Sale

My contribution to Monkey Monday: Caps For Sale, “a tale of a peddler, some monkeys, and their monkey business”.

Caps For Sale The story was originally written in 1938, but it was still in circulation in the late 70s, at which time a preschool me found it and read it dozens of times. I liked the story, mostly because of the mischievous monkeys. But I also had problems with it. I have security issues (as you regular readers might know), and I wondered first how the peddler made a living selling caps in an area that looked sparsely populated, and I really worried about him after the caps had been stolen by the monkeys. Had I encountered it a few years later, I also would have wondered why the peddler looked so much like Donkey Kong‘s Mario.
