Quiet, serious Jeremiah Hush, a monkey who lives alone, becomes involved in adventures at the Shake'n'Roll Dancin Hole, during a search for a missing umbrella, and while attending a county fair, and though he makes new friends, he learns to appreciate his quiet life.Lonely Jeremiah Hush, a middle-aged proboscis monkey, embarks on a search for friendship that takes him from the Shake 'n' Roll Dancin' Hole to his own neighborhood, where he finds four delightful companions who lead him into a series of adventures

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4 Shulevitz, best known for his beautifully designed and executed picture books, tries a longer form with mixed results. This short book contains three stories about Jeremiah Hush, a proboscis monkey existing in another world, similar to ours except that it's completely populated by animals. In the first story, Jeremiah, wondering if he is missing something, visits a sort of disco, the Shake'n'Roll Dancin' Hole: a complete letdown. It is in story number two that he discovers what is lacking: friends with whom to share his adventures. In the concluding story, he and his new friends combine forces to defeat the efforts of a foxy cheater in a pie-eating contest. The tales are held together by the lightest of constructions and are marred by an inconsistency of tone that varies from ironic to arch to genuinely appealing. The first story, in which Jeremiah is rejected by a ``slim,'' attractive giraffe, is adult in incident and style, while the second is overlong, with too much character introduction and too little plot. The third story is by far the best, uniting all of the positive elements of the book: gentle humor, warm characterizations, offbeat plot, and evocative, lyrical descriptions. The illustrations, not surprisingly, are more consistently appealing. The line drawings are full of witty detail, extending the occasional lightness of style to a prose all too often bogged down in leaden whimsy. This gets better as it goes along and it is an interesting, imaginative effort, but it is uneven: a promise more than a fulfillment. Christine Behrmann, New York Public Library
