About this deal

As the monkey and the butterfly continue their exploration, they eventually stumble upon the monkey's father. I can’t imagine that anyone other than Axel could have given such character and humour to the animals which the butterfly mistakes for the monkey’s mum. This is a lovely rhyming story which our daughter has already memorised the 'no, no, no butterfly line from! It’s is a poem which is particularly important to early development and I think really helps get little ones really into books as they can easily remember how it goes.

It was the first time I could do the skies separately from the foreground - they were put together on a computer by the publisher. His vibrant and expressive artwork adds depth to the story, making it an immersive experience for young readers.Collaborating with illustrator Axel Scheffler, she has created numerous beloved children's books, including the immensely successful "The Gruffalo" series. Monkey Puzzle" has gained widespread popularity among young readers and their caregivers due to its engaging storyline, captivating illustrations, and valuable life lessons. I would say this is better for a slightly younger audience - my son loves it from 1 and still loves it at 2.
