Amazing Monty

By Johanna Hurwitz
Illustrated by Anik McGrory

A new sibling is just one of the surprises -- some good, some not so much -- awaiting Monty in another story for early chapter book readers. (Ages 5-7)

It’s because six-year-old Monty is such a great reader that he finds out about a free pair of parakeets in need of a new owner. And though Yankee and Doodle end up in his classroom, not his own house, unexpected things are happening at home as well. First there’s the tooth that finally falls out, then the amazing news that Monty will have a new brother or sister. But one surprise -- the carwash his friends Ilene and Arlene find exciting -- turns out to be more of an asthma trigger for Monty than a treat. In this gently humorous adventure, Monty faces the unpredictable, everyday turns of a first-grader’s life with his usual lovable charm.

  • The stories, situations, and amiable humor are pitch-perfect for the age group.
  • Features a protagonist with asthma, an increasingly common condition in young children that few children s books address.
  • Johanna Hurwitz has a strong publishing history and is known as a master of the early chapter book genre
