Little Monkey
I read it to linc aged 5 & to Oaks aged 3
Little Monkey is a story about a monkey who feels left out due to being too small to do the same things as the bigger monkeys. Little Monkey decides to go on adventure to the top of the tallest tree in the forest. The story shows bravery and how not to let your differences hold you back. The book is wonderfully illustrated throughout and my sons loved pointing things out throughout the story that they could see Little Monkey getting up to like falling down/ crossing lily pads and getting followed. A nice story before bed and we will definitely read this book again.

I read it (an adult) & to bellamai aged 11
This story is about friendship and hope. It follows Felix and and his mum Astrid who live in a van. Felix is a very sensible and mature 12 year old who really wants to get out of the situation he has found himself living in. Felix tries to live a normal life and dreams of going on a game-show to turn his fortunes around. The whole story is both heart-breaking and heart-warming and Felix has a couple of amazing friends in Winnie and Dylan. The book doesn't lose it's sense of humour even when dealing with a tough topic like homelessness. The story ends in a lovely way and it would be nice to have a follow up book to Felix's next adventures. I read this book myself before giving it to my 11 year old and found it a great little read. My 11 year old is already half way through and loving the book. She loves the characters and it has got her thinking which is what a good book does.
