Book Review: Monkey Puzzle

Monkey Puzzle Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson

Rating: 5 stars

This book by the same author / illustrator team as The Gruffalo is Little Cherub's current favourite. A little monkey loses his mother and a butterfly tries to help him find her. However, there is a problem. The butterfly doesn't realise that the monkey's mother looks just like him - after all, her children look quite different! - and finds all sorts of other animals instead. A clever premise, snappy rhyming text and strong illustration come together to make a book that is a lot of fun. Little Cherub loves reading this one to herself with a running commentary along the lines of "No! ... elephant. No! ... snake. No! ... Daddy. MUMMY!!!!"
