Julia Donaldson’s beloved rhyming picture book story about two monkeys who are as different as night and day yet still learn to be friends - with adorable, sumptuous illustrations from Lucy Richards. This gorgeous board book is perfect for baby's bedtime.
Night Monkey and Day Monkey don’t think they have much in common. But when they each spend time in the other's opposite worlds, they learn a lot - and they also learn to be the best of friends. Little hands will love turning the pages of this beautiful board book. The perfect storytelling experience for babies and toddlers.
One of the finest stories from Julia Donaldson, the author behind The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, The Scarecrow's Wedding and What the Ladybird Heard. Full of fun and food for thought, Night Monkey, Day Monkey is beautifully illustrated by Lucy Richards.
The bounce of the rhyming scheme and metre is perfect, the examples each monkey gives in turn for finding fault with the world when they're the fish-out-the-water are great, and the end will leave a beaming grin on anyone. (
