Fair. Ex-Library: text is readable but suffers cosmetic damage from library marking and withrawing procedures, heavily worn from use but text is complete and readable, Loose Binding. Repairing to Front End Page.
Very good. Very clean pages. Binding tight. Cover clean with small inch long dent on back near top. There is a dent across the front due to the form of the book. 32 p. Audience: Children/juvenile. Half-page flaps This rare classic picture book follows Jacko on his voyage to a special place through delightful pictures using flaps as an interactive tool.
"Jacko" is an excellent book for children aged from 2-6. There are no words in the book, just pictures of Jacko, a naughty monkey and his/her master. When I "read" this book to my children, I asked them to supply the words - in other words, I tried to develop their vocabulary. This is an effective methods with young children who can feel frustrated because they cannot read. Not all books need words to tell a story. I bought this copy for my grandchild.

wonderful picture book
I remembered this picture book from my childhood and sought it out on alibris. The unique format reveals surprises in the story, and will appeal to all ages. It is a sweet and exciting story of the adventures of a monkey escaping from a city and finding his way to his family. A treasure!
