The Lovereading4Kids 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.

Night Monkey, Day Monkey by Julia Donaldson

Reviews

Reassuring and funny, this is ideal bedtime reading for bright children.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
