Day 93. One Funky Monkey is set in a toy store after dark, but it's basically a counting book. In that need to rhyme as we count up (one funky monkey, two happening hippos, etc), there are some pretty horrible rhymes (the worst one in our opinion is pictured). But it's kind of in that so ridiculous it's funny category, so all is forgiven. If I had to choose between this and many other quite ho-hum counting offerings, this one would get the nod.
Master A's verdict: Another perfect length for attention winner. He doesn't care about laboured rhymes.
