Reviews

A lively book about body parts, clothes, weather and objects. The antics of two little monkeys bring early toddler language to life through Laurence Anholt's questions and observations, and Catherine Anholt's playful illustrations. || Jaunty, satisfying rhymes, a joyful use of colour... a delightful book to share. || These bold, bright, beautiful picture books have all the makings of modern classics ... The series is imbued with a joyful energy that transfers itself to the reader, making this a bouncy daytime read. || Never has aquiring language been such fun or so enchanting... with a different subject per spread, jaunty, satisfying rhymes, a joyful use of colour and two exceedingly charismatic guides, this is a delightful book to share.

About the Author

Laurence Anholt

Laurence Anholt has written over seventy books, many in collaboration with his wife Catherine. They are both highly regarded in the UK and abroad as a successful author/illustrator team, and have had their books translated into many different languages. They met as undergraduates at Falmouth School of Art, and went on to achieve Master’s Degrees from the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal College respectively. The books which they have collaborated on are based firmly within their own family’s experiences, and many of Catherine’s illustrations depict scenes which families will recognise. It is this element which has helped to make their books so successful. Laurence also writes and illustrates his own books, and has written books with other illustrators, notably the Seriously Silly Stories, a topsy turvy series based on traditional tales but with a wonderful new twist. These were hilariously illustrated by Arthur Robins. In this series, Snow White and the Seven Aliens was awarded The Smarties Book Prize, and was shortlisted for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups Children’s Book Award and the Experian Big Three Book Prize. Daft Jack and the Beanstack was on the Sheffield Book Award shortlist and Ghostyshocks and the Three Scares was Pick of the Year for the Children’s Book Award. Laurence writes for a wide range of ages and is one of the most popular authors of today. Catherine and Laurence Anholt live in Lyme Regis with their three children.
