The Lovereading4Kids comment

I picked up this book purely because of it bright, bold and fun cover but was even more thrilled when the story within was even better. It’s the story of how one very determined chimp made an unhappy town a very happy one. Giles Andrae’s stunning rhyming text tells the story so eloquently.

Synopsis

Chimpanzees Of Happytown by Giles Andreae, Guy Parker-rees

Life is no fun for the chimps in Drabsville - the mayor demands that all their houses look the same and that no one should have a good time. But things take a more colourful turn when Chutney arrives, carrying a tiny seed in a box.

About the Author

Giles lives with his wife and three children in Notting Hill and Wiltshire. He writes highly successful children's books. The first, Rumble in the Jungle, was an instant success and has sold more than half a million copies. The more recent Dinosaurs Galore continues the rhyming fun and vibrant illustrations that established Giraffes Can't Dance as a perennial children's favourite. The Lion Who Wanted to Love won the Federation of Children's Book Group's Best Picture Book Award 1998. Giles more recent and equally enchanting titles are There's a House Inside My Mummy, Heaven's Having You, K is For Kissing A Cool Kangeroo and The Magic Donkey Ride. Giles's children's books have, to date, sold more than 1.5 million copies, making him one of the most successful children's authors working today.
Giles Andreae is also the creator of Purple Ronnie, Britain's favourite stickman. This phenomenally successful cartoon character has made Giles the country's top-selling poet and an icon of contemporary popular culture.


Guy Parker-Rees lives and works in Brighton. He was born in Zimbabwe and came to England when he was three. He gained a degree in English and Philosophy at York University before going on to found "Art Attack", a mural painting co-operative running workshops and play schemes. His next career move was to work as an Art and Crafts teacher at a Cardiff Hospital, working with people with learning difficulties. He then went on to set up an Art Therapy Department, for people with mental health problems.
Since 1989, Guy has been a freelance illustrator, working mainly on children's books - he has illustrated over forty to date. His first book, No Such Thing As Monsters, was published by David Bennett Books in 1993. Since then he has written and illustrated books for Oxford University Press, Hodder Children's Books, Scholastic, Bloomsbury, Egmont, Random House, Walker Books, Heinemann, Ladybird and Orchard Books.
