Shortlisted for the prestigious 2008 Greenway. Monkey tries every trick he can think of to get the Banana he craves. How will he do it? Parents and toddlers alike will be delighted by Monkey's tricks and satisfied by the way that he learns that saying 'please' will get him what he wants!

Synopsis

Banana! by Ed Vere

Getting what you want can be tricky, especially if you don't ask in quite the right way. Follow one little monkey's journey through many emotions as he tries every trick in the book to get hold of his friend's banana, until he finally hits on the magic word - please! Using only two words, this is a fantastic introduction to the value of manners and compromise for young children. Packed with humour, colour and exuberance, this is a brilliant observation of toddler behaviour.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
