Follow one little monkey's journey through many emotions as he tries every trick in the book to get hold of his friend's banana, until he finally hits on the magic word – please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Hidden Gem! My little 3 year old boy and I LOVE to read this book. He loves it! It's SO easy for him to understand and if the reader is really into throwing temper tantrums... can be super fun for the reader too. Not many words, but ingenious! The pictures tell the story and it is really great for having conversations about sharing, anger and asking for something nicely. A must!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super! My two year old daughter loves this book immediately. The illustraction is so simple that young kids can understand it right away. The color is bright and the text is simple but allows room for creativity from the readers. I bought this for her school and her classmates love it also. This has been one of her all time favoriates.
