Kid’s Book Review: Maybe

About the Book and Author and Illustrator

This is a bold and beautiful picture book that will brighten any story-time! Created by Chris Haughton in his distinctive style (we are big fans!) this book is published by Walker Books.

Three little monkeys, and their big monkey, are sat 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?

Book Review

Dylan loves spotting the tigers and telling the monkeys that there IS a tiger there!

This book took us on a wonderful little jungle journey. We got to meet the cheeky monkeys who love their mangos and we laughed at their daring little escapades.

The book is beautifully illustrated and Dylan loves spotting the tigers and telling the that 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!
