Description

From Chris Haughton comes a funny, suspenseful and keenly observed cautionary tale about pushing boundaries and indulging your more mischievous, cheeky side (when nobody is looking).

Three little monkeys, and their big monkey, are sitting high up on their branch in the forest canopy. “OK, monkeys! I’m off,” says the big monkey. “Now remember. Whatever you do, do NOT go down to the mango tree. There are tigers down there.” Mmm … mangos! think the little monkeys. They LOVE mangos. Hmm … maybe … maybe they could just look at the mangos? That’d be OK, right?

Publisher Review

Haughton's picture books tell stories as much through his idiosyncratic images as through words. This involving, laugh-out-loud tale of monkeys who don't do as they are told features funny faces, intense colour and a lesson about risk. * The Sunday Times * A wonderfully mischievous cautionary tale, delivered with characteristic style and wit. * The Bookseller * Maybe..., Chris Haughton's new book is ELECTRIC! A smidge of simian curiosity, a pinch of peril, mangoes... And a large helping of tigers. * Ed Vere * Chris Haughton has returned doing what he does best; creating yet another impossibly fun and beautiful cautionary tale about pushing the boundaries and learning life lessons. In just a few words, he gives us suspense, humour and memorable characters that are taken to heart immediately. [...] The bright, primary colour palette and simple shapes and design, this picturebook is so appealing! Cheeky, funny, irresistible...get ready to read this one over and over and over... * Fallen Star Stories * The book is beautifully illustrated and Dylan loves spotting the tigers and telling the monkeys there IS a tiger there! It's a very engaging read and a book you can have even more fun with by acting out monkey sounds and tiger sounds. The colours are bright and beautiful making it uplifting even when it's a rainy day! * Books Up North *
