More About Wilson Rawls

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Wilson Rawls grew up on a small farm in the Ozark Mountains of Oklahoma. There were no schools where he lived so his mother taught Rawls and his sisters how to read and write. He says that reading the book The Call of the Wild changed his life and gave him the notion that he would like to grow up to write a book like it. He shared his dream with his father, and his father gave him the encouraging advice, "Son, a man can do anything he sets out to do, if he doesn't give up." Rawls never forgot his father's words, and went on to create two novels about his boyhood that have become modern classics.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Wilson Rawls was born in 1963.

Summer of the Monkeys  Apr 26, 2008
This is the first time I have read "Wilson Rawls" and, although essentially a children's book, I enjoyed his writing very much. It captures the heart and touches some part of our childhood. The plot was quite interesting as well, with boy things versus girl things, having a sick child who finds a world of expression and selflessness and parents with only a hope of getting her treated due to lack of money, then the twist of fate in things turning out all right.
That's Not a Monkey!  Mar 26, 2008
Out of all the people involved in this work, you'd think it would have dawned on at least ONE of them that these are CHIMPANZEES, not monkeys. Monkeys are as different from chimps as dogs are from cats. Did no one attached to this project take a high school science class? And this work is geared toward children, no less! Amazing! No wonder we can't convince the other half of the country to accept Evolution...they don't even know the difference between a chimp and a monkey!
my daughter loves it!  Feb 8, 2008
My 8 yr old daughter (a very good reader) loves this book!! She first read Where the Red Fern Grows and loved that. She was inspired to read this one and loves it even more! She may be a good reader, but she is picky. She looks forward to reading this one. She says that Wilson Rawls makes her feel like she is really there.

Summer of the Monkeys

Have you ever thought of trying to catch a $100 monkey for free? Summer of the Monkeys by Wilson Rawls is about a boy named Jay Berry Lee who goes to his grandfathers shop for some errands. His grandfather tells him about these circus monkeys in the forest. The theme of this book is that Jay Berry Lee is trying to raise money by catching the monkeys and giving them back to the circus. He tries to raise money for his sister because she twisted her leg at birth.

When Jay Berry goes to his grandfather's store he tells him how the monkeys got to the sycamore trees. And the reason is that this circus train de-railed and the monkeys got loose. He says that about 30 monkeys got loose. One monkey, the smartest of all of them costs $100.

Jay Berry Lee is a very adventurous and smart kid. This book Summer of the Monkeys is a historical fiction novel. I recommend this book to readers who like books taken place in the old times. Readers who like stories with kids and animals should read this fascination novel.
Compassionate  Nov 2, 2007
Definitely better than the movie. We read the book as a family and felt the suspense with silence that showed all were involved and listening.
