Jolly chaos follows Monkey Red and Monkey Blue, the two bad monkeys who run amuck after bedtime. Together they create a riotous midnight feast; fruit salad, pancakes, popcorn - there’s food everywhere and it flies across the page in a glorious mess. And, somewhere in it all, hides their friend the chameleon. A simple rhyming text and lots to look at make this a book to savour.
Notable Book, 2011 Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year - Early Childhood
Monkey Red and Monkey Blue are a cheeky pair who clearly know how to have fun with a feast. And Chameleon does his best to blend into the background. Everybody has gone to bed...but not Monkey Blue, and not Monkey Red! Their mischievous friend Chameleon has a better idea: a GREAT BIG MESSY DELICIOUS Midnight Feast! Chameleon may be tricky to spot, but will he get caught in the end?
Alive with colour and movement, this is a celebration of food. Blazing with colour, joy and spaghetti, making a mess has never been so much fun. From the creator of the graphic novel adaptations of Hamlet and The Great Gatsby.
