'The moon shone down on the jungle. Night Monkey climbed up the tree. She clambered and leapt to where Day Monkey slept, And whispered. 'You can't catch me.' Julia Donaldson's much loved picture book can now be enjoyed with true-to-character plush toys of Night Monkey and Day Monkey.
Julia's much loved story is about two monkeys who are as different as night and day.
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. One of the finest rhyming picture book stories from the author behind The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, and What the Ladybird Heard, and beautifully illustrated by Lucy Richards.
The beautiful plush toys can be used separately and can also hold hands as the characters do in the picture book.
This set is perfect for story-led play, children can re-enact the adventures as they learn about the difference between dark and light.
The idea gift for kids of 3 and up! Look out for Julia's new title Spinderella. Julia Donaldson is the best-selling author of The Gruffalo, Spinderella, What The Ladybird Heard. She lives in Glasgow with her husband and spends a lot of time touring the country doing readings, and singing!
