It's hard being a little monkey in a big troop, in an even bigger jungle - and this little monkey has had enough of always missing out! She's off to climb to the top of the tallest tree in the jungle and she's going to do it all on her own. Except that there's someone following close behind. Someone with claws and stripes and rather sharp teeth . . . Little Monkey is a beautiful, funny and empowering picture book from renowned author/illustrator, Marta Altes. Little Monkey shows us that the world is a big, wild and wonderful place where anything is possible.
Marta Altes' empowering picture book Little Monkey shows that the smaller you are, the bigger your adventures can be!
