Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Itandrsquo;s time to go bananas!

A determined monkey spies a banana tree across the water. What happens next is an inventive romp, as the resourceful monkey attempts to grab a snack, with some hilarious consequences.

Full of energy, surprise, and strong visual storytelling, this practically wordless picture book will entice even the most reluctant reader. The Monkey Goes Bananas is fast-paced, delicious fun thatandrsquo;s sure to leave young readers hungry for another read.

Praise for The Monkey Goes Bananas

andquot;This predominantly wordless picture book delivers a substantial helping of slapstick.andquot;

--Kirkus Reviews

andquot;There is a slapstick element to the humor (the monkey is flung around with some regularity), which will resonate with readers as they turn each page to see what the monkey will try next. Throw in an opportunistic shark with an empty belly, and the pieces are in place for a laugh-out-loud story that should earn plenty of repeat readings.andquot;

--Booklist

andquot;Kids will jump right into this rip-roaring flip bookandndash;paced tale.andquot;

--School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Bobo tries to get a hug, but his friends just don't understand, in this tender book on love and belonging, written and lavishly illustrated by the acclaimed author of "Where's My Teddy?" and "It's the Bear".

Synopsis:

A tiny chimp invokes the universal language, uniting his friends in a group hug to end all group hugs. Just try to resist Jez Alborough's latest charmer

Bobo needs a hug. But his friends don't seem to understand. Hug, he implores, time and again. Time and again his puzzled pals--from the smallest chameleon to the tallest giraffe--shrug and cuddle with their jungle mothers. As the lonely chimp's plea escalates, his friends grow concerned. Can the elephants lead Bobo to his heart's desire?

Jez Alborough, the acclaimed author-illustrator of WHERE'S MY TEDDY?, IT'S THE BEAR , and MY FRIEND BEAR transforms a total of three words--and some of the most tenderly expressive animals ever created--into an endearing tribute to love and belonging.

Synopsis:

Need a hug? Bobo the chimp is in search of one in this best-selling picture-book charmer of very few words — and very big heart. Now Hug is more irresistible than ever, with a cuddly companion Bobo that will have readers of all ages opening their arms!
