Night Monkey, Day Monkey

When they try to play together, Night Monkey and Day Monkey learn how differently they see the same world. From fireflies to butterflies, shadows to parrots, they just can’t look at things in the same way! Luckily, in spite of all their contrasts, they also learn to be the best of friends… Written by Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, this comical and touching rhyme explores individual differences, opposites and night and day. A fascinating look at how different the world can look through two sets of eyes, it also shows that you don’t have to be the same as someone to get on well with them!

“Reassuring and funny, this is ideal bedtime reading.” Independent on Sunday

“A charmingly rhythmic poem… a clever way of reassuring small children about night-time.” The Evening Standard
