These two little books are exquisite, the sentiments expressed inside are delightful and the illustrations utterly adorable. The Hot Brands Junior reviewers loved them and so did we! A perfect gift for any child. Highly Recommended! * HOT BRANDS COOL PLACES *
This delightful book by Emma Dodd celebrates the daily love given to a little monkey. It talks of loving their tumbles and bumps, their smiles and frown, their kisses and cuddles, when they're good and bad and many other instances. The pictures on each page illustrate the various antics of the monkey, which children will love, and many of the pictures are enhanced by the use of gold foiling. The cover has nice glittery gold foiled areas too and it's also padded, which makes it nice for little hands to hold. It's a lovely book to read together and share the joys of life. -- Rachel Newcombe * Baby Surrey/Hampshire *
