The Lovereading4Kids comment

Ingenious paper engineering makes this little book extra fun for babies and toddlers. Mr Monkey is trying to get his children ready for bed but this lot of cheeky monkeys are too lively to settle down. Turning the pages operates a Venetian window effect so that the little monkeys’ faces change: each page turn sets them doing something they shouldn’t be – eating a banana, pulling a silly face, singing – to the frustration of dad. Very young children are fascinated by faces and will love watching the monkeys’ expressions change and this bright, funny book will entertain them for hours. ~ Andrea Reece


Go to Sleep Cheeky Monkey! by Carles Ballesteros

Small children love to read books featuring faces and books about animals. The Little Faces series combines the two brilliantly with a venetian window device that allows the reader to explore emotions, get ready for bed and have fun imitating different actions.

It's bedtime and Monkey wants to do everything but sleep! Join Cheeky Monkey as tries everything and anything not to go to bed in this fun, colourful bedtime story.
