Publisher: Penguin

This picture book has only two different words. One of them is 'banana' and the other is 'please'.

The plot therefore has to be deduced from the cartoon-style illustrations of two monkeys. One of them has a banana and the other one wants it - but what is the magic word?

This is a very simple, exceptionally lively book, with zinging, energetic colours and two extremely expressive characters.

Both monkeys act like contrary toddlers, which makes this an ideal title to read to a real toddler - particularly if you are always trying to get him or her to say 'please'!
