The Lovereading4Kids comment

A funny and subversive story with a subtle moral about being kind to others is based around a wonderfully lively and appealing character in the form of a monkey who is constantly playing jokes on his friends. Delightful quirky artwork will have wide appeal to both boys and girls.

Synopsis

Cheeky Monkey by Curtis Jobling

Cheeky Monkey wakes up in a particularly cheeky mood one day and swings off through the trees. He plays on Leopard Cub's back with a piece of chalk, and even ties Baby Elephant's trunk into a bow. His mum has him right some wrongs. As he sets to work rubbing off chalk, he just can't resist one more prank but it's his mum who has the last laugh.

About the Author

Curtis Jobling

The designer of worldwide hit children's television show 'Bob the Builder' and the author/illustrator of numerous children’s books, Curtis Jobling lives with his family in Cheshire.

Early work on Aardman Animation’s 'Wallace & Gromit' and Tim Burton’s 'Mars Attacks' led to him picking up his crayons in 1997 to design the BAFTA winning Bob. The animated series of 'Frankenstein’s Cat', based upon Curtis’s book of the same name, picked up the Pulcinella award for Best Children's Show at the 2008 International Cartoons On The Bay festival in Salerno, Italy. His noisy new preschool show, 'Raa Raa', can be seen on CBeebies, while his original paintings and prints sell in galleries the world over. Although perhaps best known for his work in TV and picture books, Curtis’s other love has always been horror and fantasy for an older audience.

Watch Curtis show you how to draw Bob the Builder - and then transform him into a werewolf - in the video below:
