(Banana Tale, 2002)
™ and © 2002 Banana Tale Press (Mark McKenna)

Banana-Tail the monkey lived in a tree
With bananas around him as far as you could see.
He ate so many bananas, like a growing young fellow
That his normal brown tail turned a strange shade of yellow
He called on his friends; he tried to dye his tail, But all of his efforts were to no avail.
Fortunately, he found a wise old bird
Who helped him realize he wasn’t so absurd.
With animals and funny names and colors so bright,
And a final moral that’s laid on heavy, not light,
Despite looking like a comic, it’s more a children’s book.
Decide for yourself if that makes it worth a look.

— Lorie Witkop
