Monkey Photo by Gita Wolf, Sirish Rao

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.
