Mad About Monkeys

Publisher: Flying Eye Books

Review

Monkeys are always a favourite with children, and this beautiful book explores some of the 250 species inhabiting our planet - from the smallest Pygmy Marmoset to the largest Mandrill. Each striking double page spread is bursting with monkey facts for children to discover, as well as plenty of Owen Davey's striking artwork.

Proving just how stylish and attractive illustrated children's non-fiction can be, this informative book is sure to leave readers 'mad about monkeys'. Just one of a wealth of beautiful new illustrated children's non-fiction titles that have recently hit bookshop shelves, this book is a must for young nature enthusiasts. Those who enjoy this title will also love Beautiful Birds by Jean Roussen and Emmanuelle Walker, another visually-arresting non-fiction book, this time about bird life.
