Jim Panzee, star of the #1 New York Times bestselling Grumpy Monkey series, is very grumpy when his plans for the day are ruined when Oxpecker persuades him to babysit her egg.

Jim wakes up to a perfect day and is ready to have fun. Instead, Oxpecker persuades Jim to sit on her egg for just a minute...and now she is nowhere to be found! Poor Jim is stuck being the egg-sitter. Then Norman suggests that the other jungle animals take turns, so everybody gets a chance to play. But when Jim, Norman, and Leslie take a lunch break, the troublesome egg rolls away. Jim runs after it, but the egg slips by him and ends up with the eggs in Snake's nest. When the snake eggs hatch, the baby snakes look right at Jim and cry "Mama!" Jim vows to never egg-sit again.

Easy-to-read words and colorful illustrations will lead young readers to a lifelong love of books.

Step 2 readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell simple stories. They are perfect for children who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help.

Suzanne Lang is the author of the New York Times bestselling Grumpy Monkey books as well as several other titles. When she's not writing books, Suzanne writes for animation. When she's not doing that, she hangs out with her very funny kids, feeds her many pets, and tries (but usually fails) to take a nap!

Max Lang has illustrated over 20 books including all of the books in the Grumpy Monkey series. When he is not making books he makes films. He has co-directed several animated films including The Snail and the Whale, Zog, Room on the Broom, and The Gruffalo.

In his spare time he tries to make his kids laugh with dad jokes, and when he inevitably fails, he takes his dogs for a walk.
