Night Monkey Day Monkey

Publisher: Farshore

Night Monkey and Day Monkey both live in the same jungle but their lives are worlds apart until one day Night Monkey wakes up in the day and Day Monkey wakes in the night.

But Day Monkey doesn't recognise the creatures of the night, confusing fireflies for winking eyes, bats for flying mice and the moon for a banana. Night monkey is baffled by the brightness of the sun and confuses moths for butterflies and giants for chimpanzees.

After their shared experiences both monkeys return to their familiar routines but have become firm friends, occasionally meeting up at sunrise.

The humorous rhyming text and sweet illustrations tell a lovely story about the importance of sharing each other's experiences and seeing the world in different ways.
