Once there was a peddler who sold caps, but this particular peddler carries the caps on top of his head to sell them. On the same day that he originally encountered several mischievous monkeys, he is walking home and thinking about how he was not able to sell any caps that day. He goes home, but soon he realizes that the monkeys that had caused so many problems earlier in the day had followed him home. Instead of causing problems, however, the monkeys mimicking the man’s actions actually help the peddler solve problems like cleaning up his yard and selling his caps.
