Haughton’s picture books tell stories as much through his
idiosyncratic images as through words. This involving,
laugh-out-loud tale of monkeys who don’t do as they are told
features funny faces, intense colour and a lesson about risk.

*Fallen Star Stories*
The book is beautifully illustrated and Dylan loves spotting the tigers and telling the monkeys there IS a tiger there! It’s a very engaging read and a book you can have even more fun with by acting out monkey sounds and tiger sounds. The colours are bright and beautiful making it uplifting even when it’s a rainy day!
