Summary

Read by actress Imelda Staunton, Monkey Puzzle is a clever, funny and charming tale from the unparalleled picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo. This audiobook edition also includes a song and a read-along track.

"I've lost my mum!"

Where is Monkey's mummy? It's not too much fun being lost in the jungle, and little monkey wants his mum. A kindly butterfly is keen to help, but they don't seem to be having much luck and keep finding the wrong animals! But eventually, they find...Dad! It's just as well that he knows exactly where mum is, and she's waiting with a well-deserved cuddle. 

Perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime - or any time at all!

Story Great , Performance Not So

I've loved this book for many years but found the performance very frustrating
the womans voice is very high pitched and a bit annoying but the part that really stuck out was she was saying some of the story as if it was the snake/parrot etc talking but it was just the Butterfly and Monkey. Just frustrating
