Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013 for the funniest book for children aged six and under. Bold images brilliantly convey this witty story about how much trouble one monkey nut can cause! One nut; two friends. The friends find a monkey nut can be a bench, a drum or a boat – in fact, there seems no end to the things a monkey nut can do. But, who will get to play with it? When the friends fight it looks as if they’ll both lose the nut. Luckily, there is a simple solution...

Simon Rickerty said his win was a big surprise. “It won’t sink in until tomorrow,” he told The Bookseller. “You want to win but when they call your name out it’s still a shock.”

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

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