    This book has some really cute illustrations. I enjoyed the friendship between the monkey and the elephant and all of the ways that the monkey tried to get a peanut from Kaboodle. He tried balancing things while riding a unicycle, streaming a banner from an airplane, painting a picture of Kaboodle, etc but nothing worked In the end Kaboodle tells him that he never said "please". Kit says please and gets a peanut but then throws paint at Kaboodle for not saying "you're welcome". After enjoying th This book has some really cute illustrations.

Kit says please and gets a peanut but then throws paint at Kaboodle for not saying "you're welcome". After enjoying the story and the lesson in manners I was quite surprised at the ending. I don't think the idea of throwing paint at anyone or anything is a lesson we want our kids to learn. The author should have thought of a more appropriate way to teach the rest of the lesson, of saying "you're welcome". Unfortunately because of the ending I couldn't really recommend this book. Perhaps there is still time for a change in that part of the book? I received an ARC of this book from the publisher and NetGalley, thank you.

    'Please', 'Thank you', and 'You are welcome' are magical phrases. Kaboodle, the elephant, refuses to share peanuts until his friend Kit learns to use those magical words. This book was more engaging than most thrillers I read this year. I turned the pages feverishly to know how Kit would up his game to impress Kaboodle and win that teeny-weeny peanut. This is a beautiful book which will aid parents to make their children learn some good manners. Delightful read! 'Please', 'Thank you', and 'You are welcome' are magical phrases.

    Kaboodle, the elephant is chomping away at his bag of peanuts and Kit the monkey, his friend asks him for one. When Kaboodle says no, Kit tries all sorts of things to impress his friend and score a peanut. He does everything but say please.

Kids will love seeing the extent Kit goes to trying to impress Kaboodle enough to score that little peanut. The illustrations are hilarious, I love seeing the shark almost eat Kit. My grandson giggled at this one and loved seeing what Kit was going to do next. The only thing that bothered me about this book was the ending. I did not think throwing paint on Kaboodle because he forgot to say "You're Welcome" was a good choice. The publisher generously provide me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

    This is a very quick read. Just a few words per page, repetitive (but in a good way, they kids will want to join in even if they can't really read yet). The illustrations are great and really tell most of the story. On Amazon, it said something about pop-up text. I read this on my computer (cloud app) and Ipad, and didn't see any extras, but it was great as is (maybe the Fire shows something new). I thought this was quite similar to "Banana" by Ed Vere This is a very quick read.

    This delightful book will have kids giggling as a serious, kind of grumpy, elephant (Kit) munches on his bag of peanuts and gets more and more annoyed at a spirited little monkey (Kaboodle) who wants to share his bounty. Kaboodle tries everything possible to change the elephant's mind, he: juggles china cups and plates to persuade him.... No!!, actually places his head inside a lion's mouth.... NO!!, flies a plane upside down showing off his aerial expertise... NO!!, and he even performs dangerou This delightful book will have kids giggling as a serious, kind of grumpy, elephant (Kit) munches on his bag of peanuts and gets more and more annoyed at a spirited little monkey (Kaboodle) who wants to share his bounty. Kaboodle tries everything possible to change the elephant's mind, he: juggles china cups and plates to persuade him.... No!!, actually places his head inside a lion's mouth.... NO!!, flies a plane upside down showing off his aerial expertise... NO!!, and he even performs dangerous bungie jumping exercises. But alas the elephant's response is still an emphatic... NO!!! Finally Kaboodle learns the secret to having that yummy peanut released for him to enjoy. Can you guess what it might be? The book contains a valuable life lesson for little ones and if put into action many wonderful things will be granted to them and they will be held in high esteem by all. There is an added twist at the end of the book that will make kids laugh. I love the simple, uncluttered illustrations and the expressions portrayed by both characters. The colours are bright and cheery and imagination reigns. I love the book and highly recommend it. "Please" get a copy of the book to share and enjoy. "Thank you very much!"

    Elephant doesn't want to share his peanuts. Monkey is determined to throw every trick in the book at him to impress him into sharing. In the end, Monkey is reminded to say "please," and Elephant is reminded to say "you're welcome" in a very humorous way... One I hope my own children don't use. ;-) The illustrations are vibrant and entertaining. They are sure to make small children laugh.

The text is simple and repeated, perfect for beginning readers to “read” along and start to learn some sight words. Definitely the most memorable book on manners I’ve come across in a while. Also, that monkey must REALLY like peanuts. Kids should get a giggle out of the lengths he’s willing to go for a little peanut. Recommended for beginning readers, kids learning to say please and thank you, and animal fans. I’ll keep an eye out for this one for our elementary library.

    The monkey wants a peanut, but the elephant just wont share. So our monkey friend tries everything he can think of to get the elephant to say, "YES!" Very similar to "Please, Mr. Panda", but I actually think this one is cuter. I like that the book can be easily read by children and parents alike, as while there are lots of fun pictures there aren't many words, yet it never becomes repetitive in its silliness.

    If there are two animals that really enjoy peanuts, it’s elephants and monkeys. So what happens when an elephant has a bag of yummies and won’t share? If you go through the pages fast when the monkey’s juggling the dishes, it looks like a little movie. No matter what he does, and some of the attempts are pretty impressive, the elephant is not enthralled. In the end the elephant did have a point, and the monkey’s revenge was kinda harsh. But yeah, they could have both done better. 3.5 pushed up to 4 If there are two animals that really enjoy peanuts, it’s elephants and monkeys.

Together they learn valuable lessons about sharing and manners. The drawings are lovely and my granddaughter loved it. Cute picture book for toddlers.

    This is a cute book on manners. I love the facial expressions of the elephant and the utter silliness of the monkey. Never could figure out which is Kit and which is Kaboodle, assuming those are names. It is a quick easy read for very young children. Even though it is a picture book, it seems sometimes drawn out, especially regarding the actions of the monkey. (I was provided a copy of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)

    My 4-year old daughter and I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book. She thought it was cute and giggled a few times. As an adult though, it was not very engaging, and not one that I would be thrilled about reading over and over again to her. *Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

    My daughter gives this story 10 fingers out of 5. :D She loved that she could read it by herself and she also loved the monkey. At first I wondered where the story was going, but in the end there was a good lesson to be learned. Overall, it was a quick, fun read and it was great to have a children's story in e-book format.
