short for Charlene, has just moved to Magnolia Street. She misses her old
neighborhood and friends. She was hoping to meet some kids on her new street.
"Thatís strange," thought Charlie, "I havenít seen one kid on this street
since I moved here. I wonder where they are?" Her brother, Sid, had the
answer. "Those beautiful willow trees on Magnolia Street are full of maniac
monkeys and they have stolen all the kids who live on the street." Charlie
didnít believe him but she wasnít so sure. So when Charlie met Billy one
day, she asked Billy if there were any maniac monkeys on their street.
He wasnít certain so he suggested they set a trap for all the monkeys.
Charlie and Billy sat under one of those beautiful willow trees all afternoon
waiting for the maniac monkeys. After awhile, they fell asleep and when
they woke up they had brown fur all over their faces! How did that happen?
What did the maniac monkeys do to them? Read Maniac Monkeys on Magnolia
Street to find out what other summertime adventures Charlie and Billy had
on Magnolia Street. (New
