May I bring a friend? by. De Regniers, Beatrice Schenk; Montresor, Beni, ill. Publication date. A well-mannered little boy, frequently invited to visit the king and queen, always asks to bring a friend-and the friends are always wild animals-and always well-behaved.

On Sunday, he brought a giraffe, on Monday a hippo, on Tuesday a troop . Starting with Sunday, a small boy accepts a week of royal invitations, always asking if he can bring a friend. The royal hospitality is as complete as it is unshakeable.

On Sunday, he brought a giraffe, on Monday a hippo, on Tuesday a troop of monkeys and so on until the next Saturday when the King and Queen were invited in return by all the animals for tea at the zoo. The simple verses have a real swing and their high good humor is captured with startling colors in the well known style of Beni Montresor.

What could be more natural, when invited by the King and Queen to tea, than to ask to bring a friend? And that, of course, is what the hero of May I Bring a Friend? does. Not only to tea, but to breakfast, lunch, dinner, apple pie and Halloween -- one invitation for each of six days of the week. The King is most gracious. "Any friend of our friend is most welcome here," says he. And his graciousness extends to giraffes, lions, hippos, monkeys, all kinds of friends. Not all of whom are on their very best behavior. It must be assumed however, that everyone (including the reader) enjoyed the friends, for why else would the king and queen step off to the zoo for tea on the seventh day.

I've been reading this book to children for more than 30 years and was delighted to be able to replace my worn copy with a fresh one! Children love these whimsical pictures and the compelling, humorous, delightful rhyming text and the rather fabulous story. Who wouldn't want to be a child invited by a king and queen-- and such generous and high spirited royalty as these!

This is "Mommy's favorite book," according to my children. And I do love it! There's just something about the cadence of the story that resonates with me. It's charming to listen to and the illustrations are unique. This is sure to be a classic forever.

This was one of my favorite books as a kid and I had a copy that my mom read to me so much that the jacket literally came off of it and she kept having to glue it back on and staple the book back together.
It's a simple story but at the age of 4 and 5 I appreciate the rhyming as it helped me memorize the story. I LOVED the animals in the story and precarious situation of having a giraffe over for dinner. I also really loved the bold, vivid colors of the book. The illustrations are so different.
This book also has not real peril. It really is just a story of a friendly Queen and King who seem ready to take on almost any guest as long as he's a friend of thier friend. A boy with animal friends? I wanted him to bring all his friends to my house for dinner.
I still adore this book!

This was one of my favorite books growing up from a very young age up through adolesence. I bought this book as part of a birthday present for my 6 year old nephew. I read the book to both of my nephews (age 3 and 6) for their bedtime story and they both throughly enjoyed it, they thought it was entertaining and funny! I would definitely recommend this for boys and girls age 5 and up!!!
This is my 4-year old grand daughter's favorite book. Actually, I'm tired of reading it I've read it so many times to her, she can't get enough of it. Charming book, lovely amusing story. I highly recommend it.

May 2010. My grand daughter, and her 4 year old brother are still enjoying this book. Such a cute story. The illustrations are fun.
