Monkey Photo by Gita Wolf, Sirish Rao

Monkey lives in a jungle that tourists love to visit. But he's getting tired of them taking pictures of him all the time - and he never gets to see any of them! So he decides to help himself to a camera and swing around the jungle, surprising friends and foes...Illustrated by Swarna Chitrakar in the brilliant Patua folk style from Bengal, with text by Sirish Rao, Monkey Photo records jungle life at its hilarious best.
