Monkey on the Street

Chosen for the New York Times / New York Public Library 10 Best Illustrated Children’s Book 2019

Daddy Monkey and little Monkey are on the road.
But it is so busy, and so slow!
Little Monkey has no patience.
He escapes from his safe seat and swings from the firemen’s ladder to the crane, jumps over the street sweeper, straight through the taxi.
The street is like a playground!

The ultimate car book by Leo Timmers, packed with funny vehicles and surprising monkey antics.

‘Through it all, the curious little monkey remains admirably cool and mischievously confident—and as delighted by the surroundings as readers will be.’ – Publishers Weekly (starred review)
