Julia Eccleshare's comment:
How the world looks by night and by day is nicely contrasted in this entertaining story of two different life styles, which can sometimes – just – meet in the middle. Night Monkey and Day Monkey live in contrasting worlds. While Day Monkey sleeps, Night Monkey plays and so they see the world in very different ways. One sees the moon as a banana the banana as a moon. Which is right? Who can say but the two become firm friends despite their differences. Imelda Staunton’s reading on the accompanying CD is a delight. For information about other titles by the world famous author Julia Donaldson please click here.
