Synopsis

The Chimpanzees of Happytown by Giles Andreae

A feel-good picture book from the creative duo behind the best-selling Giraffes Can't Dance. Life is no fun for the chimps in Drabsville - the mayor demands that all their houses look the same and that no one should have a good time. But things take a more colourful turn when Chutney the chimpanzee arrives, carrying a tiny seed in a box...Follow the story of Chutney, as he and his beautiful tree help to spread colour and happiness throughout the town, in this positive story about caring for other people, and for the surrounding environment. Children will love joining in with Giles Andreae's bouncy, rhyming text and spotting all the humorous details in Guy Parker Rees's bright, bold illustrations.
