A Very Cheeky Monkey Christmas by Lisa Kerr
Published by Five Mile Press
Cheeky Monkey is a boisterous carrier of the joyful Christmas spirit in this lovely board book, written and illustrated by Lisa Kerr. It’s a great seasonal addition to Kerr’s Cheeky Monkey collection.
Cheeky Monkey is so eager to be a part of the wonderful things that Christmas brings that he throws himself into all of the fun with the greatest enthusiasm (even if he isn’t very good at the task). It is a delightful reminder that it doesn’t matter if things don’t always go perfectly, and encourages all of us to share and create traditions with family and friends during this special time of year.
The featured star cut-out throughout the book lines up wonderfully with lively illustrations of colourful characters on every page, and its board book pages means that eager little book lovers can turn the pages with ease.
Every page is worth poring over, to discover all the wonderful animal characters engaging in the Christmas traditions. With a mouse nibbling off the leg of a shocked gingerbread man to Cheeky Monkey's holly bow tie, there is a spot of illustrated humour in just about every corner that children and adults will enjoy.
A Very Cheeky Monkey Christmas is an inspiring portrayal of Christmas traditions that families can be involved in together, and will make a wonderful present for your littlest of little ones or as a bedtime story to share together in the lead up to the exciting day.
