Review: Monkey Red Monkey Blue

Monkey Red and Monkey Blue don't feel like going to sleep, so they decide to have a midnight feast instead.

With the encouragement of a cheeky chameleon friend, they eat their way through popcorn, spaghetti and pancakes. But they might just find their big feast ending in disaster!

Toddlers will love this story for its cheekiness, bright colours and the sound effects it will make their parents do. Fun illustrations combine with photographs of food to give children a small taste (pardon the pun) of the delicious treats these monkeys are partaking in.

And they'll love a little extra game of finding the chameleon along the way, as he hides amidst all the colour and activity.

Great for babies and toddlers.
