Choosing the next book to add to Junior’s ever-growing library is something to puzzle over.
After all, it’s becoming a bit of a (squash and a) squeeze on that bookshelf. But don’t go to pieces …
We’ve got the perfect fit – You already know the hugely popular and highly successful partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (the duo responsible for the delights of The Gruffalo), so Monkey Puzzle will slot right in.
In this charmingly illustrated tale, the friendly Butterfly tries to help Monkey find his mum. Following Monkey’s clues, Butterfly draws misguided conclusions which take them on an adventure and a celebration of diversity as Butterfly leads Monkey to animals that couldn’t possibly be Monkey’s mum.
And, while the clues aren’t cryptic, they are clever and in the end, it becomes clear why Butterfly is repeatedly mistaken.
Beautifully illustrated and lyrically written, this puzzle will have your little monkey thrilled to pieces.

I want my mum!
