In the style of I Like Books and Things I Like, this latest book from former children’s laureate Anthony Browne shows how monkey is feeling – sad, happy, guilty, shy, confident, shy, silly…

Colour, scale and detail, along with understanding and humour, are used with great effect to make this a masterful exploration of emotion that young children will love and will provide an excellent way into discussing feelings with the very young. Lonely monkey is tiny against a mass of white space; bored monkey is in shades of grey; sleepy monkey yawns in a chair with jungle fabric, and in all the expressions are entirely convincing and touching.
