There Were Monkeys in My Kitchen
Willa Wellowby’s house has been overrun by monkeys! They’re ballet dancing, playing the bagpipes, listening to the Beatles and causing mayhem and destruction all over the house and yard. And the more Willa asks them to leave, the more havoc they wreak. She calls the city police, the RCMP, the FBI and Scotland Yard to get rid of these monkeys…but when help finally shows up, it’s Willa who’s in trouble! First published in 1992, There Were Monkeys in my Kitchen won the Mr. Christie’s Award for Best Canadian Children’s Book.
