The monkeys have a human friend called Sheila. Sheila is in hospital - and she hates the hospital food. The monkeys decide that something simply has to be done...When their first attempt at delivering bananas to Sheila is thwarted the monkeys decide to form The Banana Bunch, a secret society dedicated to the delivery of delicious, health-giving bananas to Sheila and all the other unwell people at the hospital. Banana delivery proves, however, a little more tricky than they had expected...We, of course, recommended that Sheila should eat plenty of health-giving bananas and were shocked when she told us that there are no bananas on the food menu at our local hospital. No bananas available in a hospital?! It is a national disgrace. Surely everyone knows that bananas are essential for maintenance of good health and shiny fur? For a few moments we were too amazed to know what to say or do but then Montgomery had one of his brilliant ideas.
I do wish you and Grandpa Merlin could have been here this morning when we gathered together to raise glasses of best banana fizz to celebrate the formation of The Banana Bunch - a new and secret society which is dedicated to the delivery of best quality, fresh bananas to as many unwell people as possible. The children are positively bubbling with enthusiasm and Montgomery has already been down to Bristol Docks where he has purchased several large crates of highest quality, organic, fair-trade bananas (delicious!).
