Publisher's Summary

Deep in the rain forests of the Amazon jungle, a village of very lazy people wishes to do nothing but lie in their hammocks and think great thoughts. One day, a mysterious man arrives who is able to create monkeys that do absolutely everything for them. Soon, the monkeys multiply and take on every human activity - including complaining. Actor Raul Julia narrates this humorous Colombian fable, with musical accompaniment by Lee Ritenour that perfectly evokes the spirit, rhythms, and imagery of South America. Ages five and up. Part of the award-winning Rabbit Ears series, We All Have Tales.

I found the ending off-putting.

It's beautifully read by Raul Julia, but it just ends going from one extreme to another and I didn't find either comfortable.
