Review of Monkey's Clever Tale

Mischievous Ameerah Monkey wants to cross the river but is scared of the water. She tricks her deadly enemy, Crocodile, into helping her reach the other side by promising to give him some monkey tails and money. During the journey Crocodile fantasises about how he will spend the money and Ameerah Monkey wonders how she will escape being Crocodiles next meal.
This enchanting re-telling of an Afro-Caribbean tale is ideal for storytime. The lively illustrations capture the energy of the story and young children will be beside themselves if Ameerah Monkey manages to cross the river safely!
