Monkey on the Run
by Leo Timmers
Age Range: Under_5
Papa Monkey and Little Monkey are on their way home but get caught up in a major traffic jam. Little Monkey loses patience and begins to leap from one vehicle to another. First he jumps onto a fire engine, then he’s joining a TV crew followed by a rubbish truck. There are such a variety of vehicles in the queue from a coach aquarium, taxi beehive, a rabbit takeaway stall packed with delicious carrot treats, a jewellery thief in his getaway car pursued by the police and many, many more. Will Papa Monkey and Little Monkey ever get to their destination through this utter chaos?
From one of Belgium’s pre-eminent book artists, Leo Timmers comes another intricately detailed illustrated wordless picture book. Young readers will become completely absorbed as they discover the story within the story. Along with other Timmers’ favourites – Gus’s Garage (2016) and Who's Driving? (2006), Monkey on the Run is sure to be just as popular.
