Synopsis

Monkey and the Little One by Claire Alexander

From the author of 'Back to Front and Upside Down' and 'Lucy and the Bully' comes a beautiful story of love and friendship. Monkey lived all alone in the jungle. He liked it that way. Monkey lives a quiet life, alone in the jungle. At least, he does until a visitor arrives and spoils his peace. The Little One makes himself right at home, he wants to share Monkey's jungle and life. Will this odd couple get along or go their separate ways? A charming, warm-hearted tale of the importance of friendship and the power of jam sandwiches. The perfect story time read for kids ages 3 and up. Look out for Millie Shares and The Best Bit of Daddy's Day. Claire earned a Degree in Fine Art in Canterbury then moved to London in 1995. She tried various jobs until settling down as a portrait painter and children's book author/illustrator in 2003. Millie Shares, Claire's first book for Egmont, was a tender story about sharing. She has also published many other fantastic titles including Small Florence, Back to Front and Upside Down and Lost in the Snow.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
