May I Bring A Friend?

  • Title: May I Bring A Friend?
  • Author: Beatrice Schenk De Regniers
  • Illustrator: Beni Montresor
  • Publisher: The Trumpet Club, a division of Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Inc.
  • Publication year: 1964
  • Brief Summary: From Scholastic-“An imaginative boy graciously accepts an invitation from the King and Queen and then invites them to the zoo.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library – This book could definitely be used to discuss situational irony in a literature class.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it – I loved that Montresor took some liberties, especially in the beginning of the text with which “friends” would be making an appearance. I think it adds to the absurdity of this ironic situation.
