It’s a Book

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Jackass, playing on his computer, wants to know what Monkey is up to. Monkey is reading a book. Clearly unfamiliar with books the technology savvy Jackass asks a whole barrage of questions such as ‘Can it text?’ or ‘How do you blog with it?’ Monkey, exasperated with all the questions, lends Jackass the book, who is soon won over and announces he’s off to the library.

The message to be found amid the humorous and expressive illustrations here is clear. Books are fun, accessible and sometimes hard to put down, or give back! The ‘mouse’ adds to the gentle humour. This is a picture book yet very young children may struggle with understanding some of the meanings, for example ‘tweet’ ‘wi fi’, so adults will need to be on hand to explain!
