A touchy-feely board book with simple, repetitive text, tactile patches and bold illustrations suitable for babies and toddlers. A little white mouse appears on every page, for children to spot.

A brilliant, classic that's not my... title! My 18 month old sons favourite out of the 10 or so we have. He loves turning the page himself and showing me which bits we should be feeling. Highly recommended especially if you have a cheeky monkey yourself!

We'e had a few of these books but monkey's are a favourite. Really colourful with a great range of textures throughout the book, and my  grandson tries to repeat the key word after I say it...fluffy, bumpy, rough. 
After reading a few times he's discovered the white mouse hidden on each page, so has added a new element that means he can enjoy the book whilst  in bed on his own.

We have Quite a few of ‘That’s not my...’ books and I would highly recommend them.

The pictures are bright, and the textures are great, they are fun and great to find the different textures on each page. A very interactive book.

All the books are very similar, but its nice to have the set.

My daughter who's 2 loves this book she's had many of them since she was 1years old. We says she's a monkey, so when I saw it I had to get it her. She loves to feel the things that are different on the monkeys and I'll ask her what she thinks is why it's not their monkey and she will tell me. These books are great and will recommend them

This was the first board book my husband and I ever read to our now 5 year old - a pretty prestigious responsibility! She was just 4 months old but absolutely loved feeling the textures of the individual pages and responded with giggles to the different types of monkeys and monkey sounds.
That's Not My Monkey became a firm favourite and was the most read of all her board books over time - she still loves reading it back to us now. It's regularly top of my shopping list when gifting to friends with new babies and it's the ideal 'gateway' book to the full series, as my daughter now has lots of other 'That's Not My...' in her collection.
Parent, grandparents, carers and siblings will all have fun reading this - guaranteed!

My 18 month was over the moon with this book. She is starting to collect them. Perfect size for her little hands, bright illustrations and lots for her to touch and feel. She especially likes my eyebrows are too hairy and will turn the pages to that page.

These books are great for babies and still manage to hold interest for up to 2/3 years as well. This one has different textures on each page with different sort of monkeys such as orangutans and chimps. I recommend the whole series they are great for getting babies interested in reading

I love this collection, bold bright colours, simple pictures and excellent touchy feely textures.

The words written are clear and simple helping little ones understand simple language and even read the story themselves like my 2 year old does!

As my daughter is a monkey, this was the perfect book for her! As with the other books in the series she loves the different textures and faces on the monkey. As she can make monkey noises this also keeps her entertained! One of my favourites in the series.

My daughter's favourite teddy is a big monkey, so when we saw this we had to get it and I'm so pleased we did! It's definitely her favourite of the 'Thats Not My' series, and she regularly goes and fetches it to read herself. A lovely, brightly coloured interactive book for toddlers.
