“I have a charade!” said Ostrich and she arched her next back.

“And something watery …” said Parrot
“Are you … a CUCUMBER?” guessed Toucan.
Are You a Monkey? is an entertaining story featuring animal-themed charades which will have your child in fits of giggles. As each animal mimics another, the reader can guess along with the other animals to see if they can get it right; unlike poor Toucan who always manages to guess incorrectly.
The captivating illustrations by French author and illustrator Marine Rivoal feature rich and vibrant Pantone colours with a stylish screen-print design that brings out all the personalities of the animals so well. This book is ideal for imaginative play and allowing children to discover different ways to see animal shapes and behaviours. As well as the fun element, there is a lovely message throughout the charades that demonstrates the importance of empathy and kindness as the animals all play together.
